Daniel Mendelsohn - Ecstasy and Terror: From the Greeks to Game of Thrones

Upcoming Event
Saturday, October 26, 2019 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

One of the most wide-ranging and widely read critics working today, Mendelsohn, editor-at-large at The New York Review of Books, has been praised over the course of his estimable career for his style, his erudition, and his playfulness. Divided into three parts, the latest collection of his essays spotlights his work as a classicist, with pieces on ancient drama, the Parthenon, JFK, and expert witnesses; as a modern, with discussions of Knausgaard, AI, and Game of Thrones; and as a personal essayist, with memoirs, his “critic’s manifesto,” and an account of researching The Lost, winner of the 2006 National Book Critics Circle Award.
