Poetic encounters: “Words (can) do it”

Mar 14, 2017

Event dedicated to the important American poet, Marianne Moore…

Tribute to Marianne Moore at the Hellenic American Union

Marianne Moore was born in the state of Missouri in 1887 and died in New York in 1972. Her poems, which often are about animals, are known for their accuracy, linguistic ingenuity, humor, and a peculiar "collage" technique. They were first published in 1915 in magazines and in 1921 in a poetry book. Since then she published numerous poetry books, as well as articles and essays on a variety of issues. Early on, Moore won the appreciation of great poets such as Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, William Carlos Williams, and H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) and she, in turn, promptly recognized and supported younger poets like Elizabeth Bishop, John Ashbery, James Merrill and Allen Ginsberg.

This evening of poetry brings together 12 poets to read poems by Bishop in both the original and their new, especially made for this event, translations: Orfeas Apergis, Antonia Gounaropoulou, Yiannis Doukas, Lenia Safiropoulou, Panayotis Ioannidis, Lena Kallergi, Dimitra Kotoula, Stergios Mitas, Artemis Michailidou, Christiana Mygdali, Kostas Plisiotis, Theodoros Chiotis. Stephen Bacigal will read the original poems.
