Event Details

Paula Keogh’s The Green Bell is a lyrical and profoundly moving story about love, madness and poetry. While in a psychiatric ward in her early twenties, Paula met and fell in love with the poet Michael Dransfield. Her book describes this ecstatic love affair and her struggle to live a vital life in spite of madness. In this talk, Paula will explore issues covered in her book and in the process of writing her story.

 

Paula Keogh has a PhD in creative writing from La Trobe University and received the 2015 Affirm Press Mentorship Award for the development of The Green Bell at Varuna, the National Writers House.

 

Praise for The Green Bell

‘A brave and beautiful book. In 1972, Paula Keogh fell in love with Michael Dransfield, the most gifted poet of his generation. Her portrait of him – and the brief period they spent together – recaptures that time with remarkable freshness and insight.’ Rodney Hall, two-time winner of the Miles Franklin

‘A courageous account of madness. Paula Keogh has brilliantly captured its creative exhilaration, illumination, grief and loss. She takes us on a deeply human search for integrity and meaning.’ Kate Richards, author of Madness: A Memoir
