    Memorial (the award winning poem by Alice Oswald) is a list of all the soldiers who died in the ninth year of the Trojan war. It's text is a selective translation of Homer's Iliad, missing out the central narrative and focusing instead on its many marginal narratives of ordinary lives and deaths. Alice Oswald will read from Memorial and also from her recent piece, 'Tithonus - 46 minutes in the life of the Dawn'. This poem, a response to the Odyssey, tells the story of Tithonus, whom the Dawn married and made immortal, forgetting to ask that he should not grow old. Spoken in the voice of Tithonus, the poem documents the passing of a single English dawn. You could describe it as a selective translation of the Odyssey, missing out everything but the formulaic line: 'as soon as dawn appeared, early-born and pink-fingered', which it keeps exposing to the light and then translating and re-translating. Like the Odyssey, it is a poem about survival.
