In 2014, British poet Alice Oswald mesmerized audience members at the Carlos with her performance of Memorial, her masterful portrayal of fallen soldiers in Homer’s Iliad, which won the Warwick Prize for its stunning imagery. Oswald returns to the Carlos to read from her new collection, Falling Awake. Trained as a classicist at New College, University of Oxford, Oswald reimagines figures such as Orpheus and Tithonus alive in an English landscape together with shadows, flies, villagers, dew, crickets—all characterized in tension between the weight of death and their own willpower.
