Alice Oswald is the author of six acclaimed collections.
Her most recent, Memorial (2011), is a [...]deeply
moving concentration of the Iliad that preserves the
deaths and lives of its soldiers alongside renderings
of the epic's similes.
Moderated by Mary Pinard, Chair of the Arts &
Humanities Division at Babson College.
This event took place as part of our "European Voices"
series -- an ongoing series of conversations with artists
and writers, activists and intellectuals exploring
questions at the intersection of politics and culture.
Co-sponsored by AGNI, CGS, and the NEH Distinguished Teaching Professorship (CAS Core
Curriculum). Funded in part by the European Commission Delegation in Washington DC.
