I'm planning a trip to London with my 13 year old son. As I was surfing I ran into the following:


Lecture
Stammering, stops, silence: on the method and uses of untranslation
Friday 27 September,
19.00–20.15
BP Lecture Theatre


Poet and classicist Anne Carson, University of Michigan, 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 Sophocles. She won the T S Eliot Prize with her poetry collection The Beauty of the Husband and her latest book is Red Doc.

Booking via The Poetry Society
