Join us for a reading and conversation with British poet Alice Oswald, author of six acclaimed collections. Her most recent, Memorial, is a deeply moving concentration of the Iliad that preserves the deaths and lives of its soldiers alongside renderings of the epic’s similes. Reception and book-signing to follow. Free and open to the public. This event takes 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 the literary journal AGNI and the Poetry Reading Series at the College of General Studies. Funded in part by the European Commission Delegation in Washington DC.
