Sharper than a Serpent's Tooth: South Asian Feminist Writing

Saturday 5th May 2018 7:45pm - 9:15pm Royal Festival Hall Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Writers Preti Taneja, Mona Arshi and journalist and Orwell Foundation trustee Arifa Akbar discuss subverting well-worn literary paths and creating a new trailblazing legacy for literature.

From Shakespeare to Sophocles, writers often look to the classics for inspiration for their work, bringing age-old human questions into modern-day scenarios. Many British Asian women writers are finding ways to explore the classics by presenting intimate, fresh and contemporary narratives through a feminist lens.

For this event Preti Taneja looks at her modern-day retelling of King Lear We That Are Young, and Mona Arshi discusses her debut collections of poems Small Hands in a conversation chaired by Arifa Akbar.

Venue: Royal Festival Hall
