Poetic encounters: Words (can) do it

Event dedicated to the important American poet, Elizabeth Bishop…

Event dedicated to Elizabeth Bishop at the Hellenic American Union

Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979), served, - in an exemplary fashion at the modernism era- the traditional poetic forms and the brilliantly arranged free verse. Her poetic work consists of five poetry books: North and South (1946), A Cold Spring (1956), Questions of Travel (1965), The Complete Poems (1969) and Geography III (1976). Among her other distinctions, she was awarded the Pulitzer Price for poetry in 1956 and the National Literary Awards in 1970.

This evening of poetry brings together 11 poets to read poems by Bishop in both the original and their new, especially made for this event, translations: Orfeas Apergis, Antonia Gounaropoulou-Touriki, Yiannis Doukas, Lenia Safiropoulou, Katerina Iliopoulou, Panayotis Ioannidis, Lena Kallergi, Adrianne Kalfopoulou, Stergios Mitas, Artemis Michailidou, Konstantinos Plisiotis and Theodoros Chiotis. Patricia Kolaiti will present the poet’s life and work.
