Event description

Description

John Sturrock was the LRB's consulting editor from 1993 until his death in August. He was also the author of Paper Tigers: Ideal Fictions of Jorge Luis Borges, Structuralism, The Language of Autobiography: Studies in the First Person Singular and a translator of Proust, Rimbaud and Georges Perec.

Mary Beard, Jeremy Harding, Ferdinand Mount, Christopher Prendergast and Marina Warner will discuss ideas of translation, the wonders of French theory and the difficulty – a difficulty which John Sturrock masterfully overcame – of introducing new European and Latin American writers to a suspicious Anglophone world. The event will be chaired by Michael Wood.
