The Grapevine Art & Soul Salon

Charles Knott

Charles Knott has lived a varied life as college teacher, psychotherapist, and actor. His mentors are Joseph Campbell and C. G. Jung, so his intellectual interests tend toward literature and depth psychology. A man of paradoxes, he has taught writing for many years, but has written little himself other than academic writing (a selection from his Master's thesis on Oscar Wilde was published in an academic journal). Seeing himself basically as a lecturer and conversationalist, he has now, due to his affection for The Grapevine, decided to make the effort to become a writer. His favorite line about writing was uttered by Flannery O'Connor's doctor, who once told her, "It's O.K. for you to write, but you must not do any hard work." His love of theater can be seen in some of the photos we post here.
