What divides us, and what do we share? When moments of mystic clarity come to us, what do they reveal? In this talk, art history professor and author Alexander Nemerov recounts a trip he took to Chico, California to visit the site where the Sherwood Forest scenes in the 1938 Hollywood movie The Adventures of Robin Hood were filmed. Meditating on history and fiction, and love and loss, he explores the relation of Robin Hood’s famous words — “Take from the rich, give to the poor” — as they relate to his own life.
