First Friday Lunch at the Nassau Club - June 3rd, 2011

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.

This month's lunch features Cate Reilly, Grad Student in the Comparative Literature Department.
Cate will discuss "Rilke and Chekhov: Translation and (Play)giarism" . 

Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)  is the little-known first translator of any of Anton Chekhov's dramatic works into the German language. Rilke's contact with the Russian poet Sophia Schill allowed him to obtain handwritten transcriptions of Chekhov's plays, "The Seagull," (1896) and "Uncle Vanya" (1897). Although his translations have been lost, Rilke's understanding of Chekhov survives through his own version of "The Seagull," a short piece called, "Everyday Life." The play premiered in Berlin in 1901, and was later converted into a popular radio-drama in Fascist Germany. 

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s full buffet as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is required. 

Looking forward to seeing your orange and black!
