About the event

Alice Oswald reading, Southbank Centre, London. With Memorial, Alice Oswald has created a new version of The Iliad, capturing the atmosphere of the original poem. Oswald is one of contemporary poetry's most original voices. Her approach to Homer's classic text was to stay true to its original 'enargeia', its 'bright, unbearable reality', to create a vital new work to savour. Oswald's previous books include Dart, which won the TS Eliot Prize in 2002. Tickets: £10. Concessions: 50% off (limited availability). For more information or to book tickets visit:
