‘STAMMERING, STOPS, SILENCE: ON THE METHOD AND USES OF UNTRANSLATION’ – Anne Carson presents an illustrated exploration of the untranslatable.

In a rare UK appearance, poet and classicist Anne Carson gives the Poetry Society’s Annual Lecture in which she will discuss gaps between languages, the airy, haunted space where ancient and modern come together, and words that go silent in transit. She will explore Homer, Joan of Arc, Francis Bacon, Hölderlin, Rembrandt, Paul Celan and Ibykos, as well as referencing her own poetry.

University of Liverpool’s Kenneth Allott Lecture, Victoria Gallery & Museum (Leggate Theatre), Ashton St, Liverpool, L69 3DR.
