Translator Hoggard to Speak on Writer Marie d'Agoult
As Part of U. T. Dallas' Claire Rich Lecture Series

Lynn HoggardRICHARDSON, Texas (April 17, 2003) - Author, teacher and translator Lynn Hoggard will speak on the work of French writer Marie d'Agoult (1805-1876) on Friday, April 25, at 4 p.m. in the Jonsson Performance Hall at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). The lecture, entitled "Eve's Proud Descendant: How Marie d'Agoult Helped Rethink Civilization," is part of the Claire Rich Lecture Series and is free and open to the public.

Hoggard, a past president of the American Literary Translators Association, received a grant three years ago to translate Nélida by d'Agoult, who was composer Franz Liszt's longtime companion. SUNY Press plans the translation for publication in December. Hoggard teaches French and English and directs humanities studies at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. She has published widely, including her own poetry featured in A Certain Attitude: Poetry by Seven Texas Women; biography, Married to Dance: The Story of Irina and Frank Pal; literary criticism, and translations of a Paul Valéry long poem, Sketch of a Serpent, and of a Henri Michaux prose poem collection, Tent Posts.

The lecture series was established in honor of Claire Rich, who was a graduate teaching assistant of freshman rhetoric at UTD when she died in 1997. The series brings a renowned scholar in humanities to UTD each year to deliver a lecture.
