Literature: Food for Risen Bodies with Michael Symmons Roberts
- Fri 08 Dec 2017
- 7:00 pm
Join world-renowned poet Michael Symmons Roberts for a special close reading of the series ‘Food for Risen Bodies’ from his 2004 collection ‘Corpus’.
After reading, Michael will invite questions from the audience, which will be discussed as a group over (free) wine and bread. Chaired by Martin Kratz.
This poetry event is free to attend and open to all, it is a companion event to Encountering Corpses III (8th-9th December 2017) which includes an exciting mix of presentations on the many ways in which we increasingly encounter the material remains of the dead in a variety of contexts, including popular culture, the media, the everyday, tourism, heritage and archaeology, and medical contexts.
