The Center for Modern Greek Studies, the Nikos Kazantzakis Chair, in cooperation with the Department of English at SFSU and the Friends of the J. Paul Leonard Library extended this warm invitation to the campus and Bay Area community at large: MacArthur-award winner, classical scholar, poet and translator, Anne Carson, who teaches Classics and Creative Writing at New York University, did a reading of her latest work.
Professor Carson is the author of the studies 'Eros the Bittersweet' and 'Economy of the Unlost', collections of poems, essays and short fiction, 'Short Talks,' 'Plainwater,' 'Glass, Irony and God,' 'Autobiography of Red,' 'The Beauty of the Husband,' 'Men in the Off Hours,' 'NOX,' and 'Red Doc>,' opera 'Decreation' and translations from the ancient Greek including 'If Not, Winter: Fragments by Sappho,' 'Grief Lessons: Four Plays by Euripides' and "Antigonick' by Sophokles. A frequent contributor to the 'London Review of Books' and 'The New Yorker,' she is widely considered to be one of the world's most exciting and engaged poets.
The reading took place on Friday, April 25, in the HUMANITIES building, room 133 at 7 pm.
