Natalie Swain, University of Bristol

How are Latin poems like comics? Although these texts seem far removed in time and place, Natalie Swain explained how comics can bring a new perspective on ancient poetry. In this talk, she showed how a highly ornate collection of Latin love poetry can be read as a connected sequence - and, how reading comics today can provide the tools and help us understand these intricate ancient narratives.

Light refreshments provided. All welcome.
