Cavafy: A Guided Discussion with Gregg Thompson
April 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT
The works of C. F. Cavafy, since his death in 1933, have garnered his legacy increasing attention and acclaim as the most distinguished Greek poet of the 20th century. Observing and commenting on matters sacred and sensual, his poetry uniquely invites conversations spanning topics as diverse as historical civilizations, anxiety, homosexual desire, and spiritual curiosity. Join us as Gregg Thompson leads a 2-part discussion of Cavafy’s writing and how they continue in enduring relevance.
Note: The discussions of Cavafy’s works will take on 2 consecutive Saturdays, April 22nd and 29th.
