STAMMERING, STOPS, SILENCE: ON THE METHOD AND USES OF UNTRANSLATION
University of Liverpool’s Kenneth Allott Lecture, 6:30-7:45pm
Poet and classicist Anne Carson gives the Poetry Society Annual Lecture, offering an illustrated exploration of the untranslatable with examples from Homer, Joan of Arc, Francis Bacon, Hölderlin, Rembrandt, Paul Celan and Ibykos. Also referencing her own poetry, Carson discusses gaps between languages, the airy haunted space where ancient and modern come together, and words that go silent in transit. Carson has translated writers including Sappho, Euripides and Sophokles. She won the TS Eliot Prize with her poetry collection The Beauty of the Husband and her latest book is Red Doc>.
