The Poetry Project’s spring benefit, Epic Now: Poetry for Epic Times, brings together some of the best contemporary poets now working to re-imagine some of the best poems ever written. The friction between past and present sparks two evenings of lively poetry performance, including fresh takes on The Iliad, Dante’s Inferno and The Cantos by Ezra Pound. Ranging from gallant to gritty, elevated to exaggerated, these epic “remixes” prove once again poetry’s continuing relevance and its timeless ability to touch souls, century after century.
