Daniel Mendelsohn - Waiting for the Barbarians *CANCELLED due to weather
In his latest collection of essays, the author of The Lost and The Elusive Embrace makes telling connections between diverse topics. A discussion of a recent Sappho translation leads him to consider the use of myth in Spider-Man, for example. He writes on Sontag and Noel Coward with as much energy as he does Titanic and Mad Men.
This event has been cancelled.
