"Haunting Heroines: Greek Plays and Transnational Novels," Kamila Shamsie and Colm Tóibín

"Haunting Heroines: Greek Plays and Transnational Novels," Kamila Shamsie and Colm Tóibín

Event Category: 
Talks

Apr. 12 - In two recent novels, Kamila Shamsie and Colm Tóibín recreate classical mythology to address contemporary audiences and transnational subjects. Kamila Shamsie's Home Fire brings the story of Antigone to the contemporary British Pakistani community, while Colm Tóibín's House of Names re-imagines the Agamemnon tragedy from the points of view of Clytemnestra and Electra. These two authors will join each other in conversation to discuss their modern adaptations of these Greek classics and to explore why these heroines continue to haunt writers and readers today. Chris Morash will moderate the discussion.
