Season 2 Episode 32: Jean-Jacques Fournier The Poetry of Crows & Ravens
I am delighted and thrilled that my dear friend and poet; Jean-Jacques Fournier is with me today to speak about crows, and ravens within his poetry. As background, ravens and crows are embedded within our mythologies from ancient times. In Greek mythology the crow was a symbol of Apollo in his role as god of prophecy. In Norse mythology, Odin is portrayed by a raven. In Celtic mythology, Morrighan, the warrior goddess appears in the form of a crow or raven. Crows and ravens have been envisioned as a mediator animal between life and death. They have been known as tricksters and mischief makers.
Jean-Jacques has great insight into these magnificent creatures.
So put the kettle on and add to this exciting discussion, on Tea Toast & Trivia.
