Professors Elizabeth Fowler, Clare Kinney, and A. C. Spearing Talk on WTJU

Professors Elizabeth Fowler, Clare Kinney, and A. C. Spearing went on the air October 9th to talk about Sir Gawain and the Green Knight on WTJU's "Soundboard." Professor Kinney read her own translation of a passage, Professor Spearing read from the original, and all discussed the powerful resonances that the fourteenth-century work still has for us today.

UVA Today has a story about the conversation, "Living Literature: Anonymous Author Speaks to Readers Through the Ages,"  where you can read more about the exchange and Sir Gawain.

You can also listen to a recording of the session below:
