Arts Calling is a podcast to celebrate creatives across disciplines and cultural backgrounds making art no matter where they are. A case for the arts as the gateway to empathy, healthy lives, and strong communities.
Today I’m delighted to be arts calling J. Simon Harris!
J. Simon Harris lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with his wife Ashley, their son Luke, and their dogs Hallie and Lucy. In addition to literature and poetry, he loves science (and works as a scientist), videogames, movies, the outdoors, and most of all spending time with his family. He has translated poetry into English from Italian, Spanish, Ancient Greek, Old English, and Provencal. His translation of Dante’s Inferno in terza rima is now available on the Amazon Store. He is currently working on a translation of Dante’s Vita Nuova, and a translation of Homer’s Iliad in hexameter verse (and of course, he’s eager to start work on Purgatory). Much of his work, including translations and original poetry, is showcased on his blog (www.jsimonharris.com)
