Faculty at Five: An Evening of Goethe with Professors Turner and Ozsvath
Monday, October 26, 2009
7:30 p.m.
Jonsson Performance Hall, UT Dallas Campus

Join us in the Jonsson Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m. for a free, informal presentation series featuring UT Dallas Arts and Humanities faculty and special guests as they perform and discuss their craft. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is one of the most celebrated poets of his time, a man whose works span the Enlightenment, the romantic period and the beginnings of modernism. If the myth of Faust is the myth of the West, Goethe was its deepest interpreter. Poet, scientist, novelist and philosopher, his work is at the core of the Arts and Humanities mission at UT Dallas. He comes to life in the fresh new works of internationally recognized, prize-winning translators Leah and Paul Lewis, Chair of Holocaust Studies Zsuzsanna Ozsvath and UT Dallas Founders Professor Frederick Turner, the internationally-recognized prize winning translators - and in Goethe's own meter and music. For more information, visit the website for the School of Arts & Humanities.
