Description:
"Literature and Sport" exhibit comes to Ransom Center
Drawn exclusively from the Ransom Center's collections, this exhibition showcases the literature of sport through fiction, essays, poetry and plays.

Sport holds a sacred place in Western culture and literature. Writers as diverse as Ernest Hemingway, Willa Cather, Norman Mailer, Marianne Moore, Don DeLillo, Joyce Carol Oates and David Foster Wallace have written about sport.

Organized by sport, the exhibition highlights some of the finest examples of literary writing about baseball, football, boxing, tennis, cricket, bullfighting and more. From Bernard Malamud's "The Natural" to Norman Mailer's "The Fight," great literary works capture the appeal of sport and its ability to transform both the individual and society, all the while demonstrating how writers elevate language to literature.
