About the Author

Ruth Padel is a Fellow both of the Royal Society of Literature and Zoological Society of London, and is currently Resident Poet at Christ's College, Cambridge. She has published seven collections of poetry, most recently a biography in poems of her great great grandfather Charles Darwin. She began as a classical scholar at Oxford and writes a wide range of non-fiction as well as poetry, including two books about reading modern poems, a much admired travel-conservation book about wild tigers, a groundbreaking study of Greek myth and rock music, and two books on the idea of consciousness, and of madness, in Greek poetry, tragedy and religion. She gave the Newcastle/Bloodaxe Poetry Lectures at Newcastle University in 2008, published as Silent Letters of the Alphabet (Bloodaxe Books, 2010).
