Virtual: Mary Jo Bang and Maria Dahvana Headley

Join Porter Square Books for a virtual talk with Mary Jo Bang, author of the new translation Purgatorio, and Maria Dahvana Headley (Beowulf: A New Translation)!

These new translations have been described as "meaty, luscious, erudite, straight-talking, and joyful" (Susan Susan Bernofsky on Purgatorio) and "electrifying . . . brash and belligerent, lunatic and invigorating" (The New Yorker on Beowulf) and we're thrilled to have these brilliant translators together on one screen to tell us more. This event is free and open to all, hosted virtually via Crowdcast.
