Adam Gopnik on Homer

Adam Gopnik

How can we read Homer in the twenty-first century? Not as a schoolroom duty or an archeological expedition, complete with pith helmet, but as epic poetry that enters our hearts? Having emerged from a two-year immersion in Homeric translations, including those of Robert Fagles and Emily Wilson, Adam Gopnik returns to the Books and Bagels series to offer advice and appreciation about exploring the bedrock of Western literature in an age of shaken foundations.

Tickets to this event include a light bagel brunch.
