RE-CALIBRATING THE CLASSICS
I will be taking part in a a reading and discussion with Michael Schmidt, of Carcanet Press, and Philip Terry on translating ancient texts, specifically our new versions of the Epic of Gilgamesh – my Gilgamesh Retold and Philip’s Dictator. How can one poem speak in such different voices and authorise such different responses? RHB 137, followed by a drinks reception.
