When we think of creative couples, we may remember Marie and Pierre Curie, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Edward and Charis Weston, Lou Harrison and Bill Colvig, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed, Paul Auster and Siri Hustvedt. Of course there are countless other, less celebrated couples whose names also stimulate thinking about ways in which partnership may influence human flourishing and creative work. In this series, we are interested in better understanding how creative insights arise from risk taking and the open-ended possibilities that are nurtured by intimacy. The series begins on January 29 with Irvin and Marilyn Yalom.
