Bearskin” is a story of betrayal and bankruptcy, of a moment when soldiering on is no longer valued. A young soldier finds possibilities for healing in a long, slow and lonely process of transformation. The lecture will begin with a reading of the tale.

We will also frame the tale within the psychological context of our own time, with reference to psychiatric diagnoses such as Depression and Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder.
