Margaret Elphinstone

“Speaking to the Animals about the Hunt”

Our technological inventiveness has outstripped our social and psychological development. We cannot handle the world we have created. This talk will seek lessons from our distant ancestors who knew they must listen to the Earth and the Animals to keep the balance right. We must rediscover and apply their skills if we are to survive.

Bio: Margaret addresses these issues in her writing, in both fiction and non-fiction. Her most recent novel, The Gathering Night, examines the life ways of hunter gatherers living sustainably 8000 years ago, an implicit commentary on our times.

Margaret believes the arts have a crucial role in creating contemporary narratives addressing our predicament and offering alternative visions for the future. She has published eight novels, short stories, poetry, literary criticism and two books on organic gardening. Her working life has been spent in Scotland, apart from a short spell in the USA. She is emeritus professor of Writing at Strathclyde University. She now lives with her partner in Galloway. http://www.margaretelphinstone.co.uk/
