Episode 101: The Small [And Pixelated] Made Large – From Grievance To Groundbreaking Change – Amy Butcher

This lecture will consider the act of naming. How do we choose the names we give to the characters and figures in our stories and poems?
How does a name give a character charge, or mark it, or erase it, or illuminate it? How can a name be used as a veil or a cape? An echo or a halo? What are the joys and pitfalls of using the names of the living and the dead inside acts of the imagination?
