Poetic encounters: “Words (can) do it”

Mar 19, 2018

Event dedicated to the important American poet, Ezra Pound…

Tribute to Ezra Pound at the Hellenic American Union

Ezra Pound (1885 – 1972) was a major figure in the early modernist movement of the 20th century. Although his many and lengthy Cantos are considered as his magnum opus, he also wrote shorter poems, which were collected in the Personae anthology. These poems are full of vivid imagery, references to older poets and Pound’s preoccupation with poetry as a music form.  

This evening of poetry brings together 11 poets to read poems from Personae in both the original and their new, especially made for this event, translations: Orfeas Apergis, Mary Yossi, Antonia Gounaropoulou, Yiannis Doukas, Lefteris Zacharioudakis, Panayotis Ioannidis, Lena Kallergi, Dimitra Kotoula, Stergios Mitas, Artemis Michailidou and Christiana Mygdali. Stephen Bacigal will read the original poems.
