Students interested in hearing internationally acclaimed translator Stanley Lombardo read excerpts from his versions of Homer’s “Iliad” and “Odyssey” should make their way to the Round Room in the Ford Center for the Fine Arts tonight.
Lombardo’s translations are frequently used in academia and lauded for their conversational and contemporary style. Both of these well-known folk epics were originally read aloud as oral compositions, Lombardo is known for his ability to convey this fact in his readings.
The reading is free and will begin at 7:30 pm.
This event is sponsored by the Greig Post Adventure in Arts Fund, the English Department Fellowes Fund, the Dennis Donham Fund in History, the Classics Club and the Classics department.
