Marina Warner and Eleanor Birne: Forms of Enchantment

Fully Booked
£10
London Review Bookshop

Marina Warner’s new collection of essays, Forms of Enchantment (Thames and Hudson), collects her writing on art from 1988 to the present, including pieces on (among others) Louise Bourgeois, Joan Jonas and Paula Rego. She brings to artists and artworks the same anthropological and mythological approach which informs her previous books, including Stranger Magic, From Beast to Blonde and Monuments and Maidens, arguing that the social position filled by art and aesthetics is increasingly best understood in terms of magic.
 
Warner will be in conversation with Eleanor Birne, author and contributor to the London Review of Books.
