Poetry on the Plaza:
Crossing the wine-dark sea

Harry Ransom Center Plaza, UT Campus
12pm, noon

The sea was at the heart of the ancient world: it facilitated trade and cultural exchange, helping to shape identity. But the sea was also a barrier: a dangerous crossing-point which brought death and misery to many.

Join Paul O'Mahony for a selection of readings from Homer's Odyssey, along with modern poems about refugees, homecoming and the sea.
