Poetic encounters: Words (can) do it

Mar 31, 2014

Event dedicated to the pioneer of American modernist poetry, William Carlos Williams…

William Carlos Williams
William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) was born in Rutherford, New Jersey where he lived almost his entire life. He is regarded as one of the pioneers of last century’s poetry revolution and modernist movement. In his poetry, Williams seeks to create a new language which objectively describes the American reality, a language which he considers to be the absolute creative and purifying force. 
 
This evening of poetry brings together 18 English and Greek-speaking poets and translators to read 27 poems by William Carlos Williams in both the original and their new, especially made for this event, translations:
 
Orfeas Apergis, Stefanos Bacigal, Theodoros Chiotis, Costis Christodoulou, Yiannis Doukas, Christine Esopou, Antonia Gounaropoulou-Touriki, Katerina Iliopoulou, Panayotis Ioannidis, Lena Kallergi, Nathan Kuhlman, Peter O’Leary, Artemis Michailidou, Stergios Mitas, Konstantinos Plisiotis, Gregory Sakkas and Eleni Christina Stamopoulou. Panayotis Ioannidis and Adrianne Kalfopoulou will preface the event.
