Book Launch At The Alderman
134 Lygon Street
Carlton VIC 3054
Wednesday 30 June
Νoted linguist Kate Burridge launches Robert DiNapoli’s book of early English wisdom poetry, released this year by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. Bob will read from his translations, speak to the fascinatingly elusive concept of wisdom, and moderate whatever discussion the whole business prompts.
Subject, of course, to a lifting of current lockdown conditions. The Alderman is kindly holding the booking for us, and we'll have to review the situation closer to the date. Here's hoping!
Frost will freeze, fire dissolve the wood.
The earth must burgeon; ice will make a bridge—
water wear a helmet—wondrously
locking the seeds in the ground. One shall loose
the fetters of the frost: almighty God.
Maxims I, ii.1-5
