Description

Dr. Azriel Bibliowicz will present a lecture, "Asking for the Impossible" on Tuesday, April 11 starting at 6:30 p.m. in Olin 103.

His lecture will focus on the power of words and the responsibility of writers to intentionally revive or evolve the meaning of words to create social change. In this lecture Bibliowicz will draw from canonic authors like Shakespeare, Cervantes, and more contemporary ones like Elias Canetti, Paul Celan, and Mario Vargas Llosa to address how poets and novelists have dealt with beginnings and ends, with fantasy and reality, and with overwhelming political and social circumstances.
