Shape of an Ending (for Immortals & Mortals)
Take Zinedine Zidane, Bill Buckner, Jake LaMotta and Tiger Woods. What can the shape of an athlete’s career — especially ones that end in failure — tell us about the shape and meaning of ordinary human lives? Stanford University English Professor Blake Vermeule, author of Why Do We Care about Literary Characters? will explore this question. Event takes place in Mother Rosalie Hill Hall, Warren Auditorium.
