Poetic encounters: “Words (can) do it”

Mar 17, 2016

Event dedicated to the important American poet, Robert Duncan…

A tribute to the American poet Robert Duncan at the Hellenic American Union

Although Robert Duncan (1919-1988) has written a number of poems inspired by Ancient Greek mythology, he remains relatively unknown in Greece. Considered as a prominent representative of the New American Poetry, Duncan participated in the art movements of San Francisco Renaissance and of the Black Mountain College. His poetry, besides Ancient Greece, is inspired from the European medieval literature to Jalal al-din Rumi’s Sufism.

This evening of poetry brings together 13 poets to read poems by Duncan in their new, especially made for this event, translations: Orfeas Apergis, Mary Yossi, Antonia Gounaropoulou-Touriki, Yiannis Doukas, Lenia Safiropoulou, Katerina Iliopoulou, Panayotis Ioannidis, Lena Kallergi, Stergios Mitas, Artemis Michailidou, Christiana Mygdali, Kostas Plisiotis and Thedore Chiotis.

Stephen Bacigal will read the original poems and Marios Chatziprokopiou will present the poet’s life and work.
