Book Launch: Ezra Pound’s and Olga Rudge’s The Blue Spill: A Critical Manuscript Edition by Mark Byron and Sophia Barnes
Alex Howard (Department of Writing Studies) will launch Ezra Pound’s and Olga Rudge’s The Blue Spill: A Critical Manuscript Edition (Bloomsbury) on Friday 24 May in the Woolley Common Room, Woolley Building A20, University of Sydney. Please join us at 4pm for the launch accompanied by drinks and snacks. Learn about the nature of this collaboration between two artists living in Italy in 1929-30 just as the novels of Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and others were being distributed and translated into Italian. Also, discover the mysterious key to the question: whodunnit? The manuscript is tantalisingly unfinished, but the editors have a strong case to make for the identity of the murder. Judge their textual forensics for yourselves.
