Reading with Translator Carl Skoggard

May 14, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Jacob von Gunten is a high-wire literary performance treading the border between writing and speaking, dreaming and waking, by the visionary Swiss novelist Robert Walser (1878-1956). Fairy-tale, absurdist word play, romantic melodrama, disquieting social and psychological reportage–all these interact in young Jacob’s diary, presented here in a fresh and bracing translation by Valatie resident Carl Skoggard.
