Alchemy: The Way of the Imagination

Lindsay Clarke & John Moat read from their work

Alchemy, with its emphasis on universal balance, (as imaged by the Mystical Marriage) has over the last fifty years been drawn increasingly to popular consciousness. Its influence has been central to the work of john Moat, and Lindsay Clark whose novel The Chymical Wedding won the Whitbread Fiction award. The reading will illustrate this influence and suggest it may have more than passing contemporary relevance.
