This great essay/speech first appeared in the Winter 2010 issue of Arion.

A great essay by Anne Carson on Homer, Alberto Moravia, Jean-Luc Godard, Brigitte Bardo, and the tensions between art and commerce appears here, in the latest issue of the journal Arion.

If you’re ever searching for proof that the Humanities and especially the Classics have something to teach us about the way the world works even today, I’d say just take a look at any issue of Arion, online or at the library.
