Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.

Michael Schmidt & Jenny Lewis: Kellogg College, Oxford

Wednesday 27 Feb 2019, 17:30 to 18:30

Kellogg College
60-62 Banbury Rd


Creative Writing Seminar 

All are welcome to attend this seminar hosted by the Kellogg College Centre for Creative Writing entitled 'Re-Calibrating the Classics: A Discussion and Reading[' which will be given by Professor Michael Schmidt and poet Jenny Lewis.

Michael Schmidt of Carcanet Press discusses comparative approaches to translating ancient texts, radically unstable and suggestive in themselves, and introduces Jenny Lewis's new version of the Epic of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh Retold. How can one poem speak in such different voices and authorise such different responses?

Refreshments will be served from 17:00. The seminar will begin at 17:30. No booking is necessary.
