”The Poetry of Pop: Was ancient drama the rock music of its era?”

St Gabriel’s Classics Department presents:
 
‘The Poetry of Pop: Was ancient drama the rock music of its era?’
 
It is with great excitement and anticipation that the Classics Department announces its latest talk. Speaking on the subject of lyricism modern and ancient we have the bass and keyboard players of ‘The Cure’ (think ‘Lovecats’, ‘Friday I’m in Love’ or ‘Boys don’t cry’) talking on how modern music finds its lyrical and musical inspiration. ‘The Cure’ are arguably one of the ‘super-bands’ of the 80’s up to the present day, so this is an incredible opportunity to hear about the creative process in action. For the ancient perspective, we have Dr. Henry Stead, author of ‘A Cockney Catullus’ and translator of Greek and Roman tragedy. He has also made a major contribution to the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama and is the founder and director of London Poetry Systems.
 
This event is being promoted to encourage the notion that the ancient and modern worlds are not as far apart as people sometimes think. It will be taking place on Wednesday 22nd March in the Sports Hall at 7.30p.m. We envisage the talk lasting until around 9.00. Refreshments will be provided.
 
The talk is free, but we are asking for donations to support the teaching and promotion of Classics: all money raised will go to Classics for All which supports the teaching of Classics. It is open to anyone with an interest in Classics, music, drama, poetry or any other field of learning: few things are more inspiring than watching experts in their field.
 
If you would like to attend this talk, please fill in the form below as soon as possible. We anticipate great demand for this event, so to avoid disappointment please do return your slips as quickly as possible.
 
Yours,
 
Mr. Ives, Head of Classics
