Dean of the Humanities N. Gregson Davis speaks on Tuesday, 26 Oct., at the Library

On Tuesday, 26 Oct., at 4:00 p.m., Dean of the Humanities N. Gregson Davis will speak at Perkins Library in the Rare Book Room. Davis, who is also Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Professor of the Humanities in classical studies, will speak about "Homer in the Caribbean: Epic Narratives of Homecoming in the Poetry of Derek Walcott and Aime Cesaire." Dean Davis will reflect on the way in which Cesaire and Walcott have adapted motifs of the ancient epic narrative tradition in major poems that seek to define the predicament of the postcolonial writer. Gregson Davis's lecture is part of the Engaging Faculty series, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Duke University Libraries. The event is free and open to everyone.
