Description

Anne Carson, a writer of “inscrutable brilliance” (The New York Times) who calls herself a visual rather than a verbal artist, discusses the influence of the Classics on her work as a poet, essayist, and translator. A teacher of ancient Greek, she has published 20 books, blending genres and media. Her first book, Eros the Bittersweet, was named one of the 100 best nonfiction books of all time by the Modern Library. She is also the author of Nox, Antigonick, The Beauty of the Husband, Autobiography of Red, and its sequel Red Doc>. Carson, a recipient of a MacArthur “genius grant” among many awards, gives a keynote of the Visualizing Theory Conference.
 
Presented with the Critical Theory Certificate Program.
