Curator's Tour: "Literature and Sport"

Wednesday, Jul 31, 2013 7:00p

The crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, the sudden-death play, the sweat, the triumph, the thrill. Sport holds a sacred place in western culture and literature. Writers as diverse as Ernest Hemingway, Willa Cather, Norman Mailer, Don DeLillo, Joyce Carol Oates, and David Foster Wallace have written about sport. The competition, spectacle, personal struggle, and exaggerated personalities so characteristic of sport offer the perfect backdrop upon which to look deeply into human nature.
