Michael Longley gives the 2017 W G Sebald Lecture

One of Britain’s finest poets, Michael Longley delivers Releasing the Lyric: Translating Latin and Greek, on literary translation. He has received many awards for his sophisticated, but deceptively simple poetic studies of love, death, memory, history and nature, published over more than fifty years.

He reads from, and comments on his youthful versions from Sextus Propertius and progresses to later poems derived from Ovid’s Metamorphoses and Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, taking in Sappho and Tibullus on the way.

In association with the British Centre for Literary Translation, founded by writer W G Sebald
