Poetic encounters: Words (can) do it

Mar 14, 2013

Event dedicated to the renowned American poet Emily Dickinson – 36 poems + 2 letters…

Emily Dickinson

Although relatively unknown as a poet during her lifetime, Emily Dickinson (1830–1886), is now considered one of the most renowned American poets. She spent most of her life in her family home in Amherst, Massachusetts, and until her death only a few of her eighteen hundred poems were known, and these mostly through the letters she wrote.

This evening of poetry brings together 15 English- and 16 Greek- speaking readers to read 36 poems and 2 letters by Emily Dickinson in the original and in their published (or in some cases, new) Greek translation:

Adrianne Kalfopoulou, Alicia Corialano, Alicia Stallings, Anna Haughton, Geeta Roopnarine, Ginger F. Zaimis, Jennifer Hicks, Jessica Bell, Monica McShane, Nathan Kuhlman, Peter O'Leary, Rosemary Donnelly, Stefanos Bacigal, Thodoris Chiotis, Walter Preston, Anna Griva, Antonia Gounaropoulou-Touriki, Iana Boukova, Yiannis Doukas, Danai Sioziou, Zyranna Zateli, Iro Nikopoulou, Theoni Kotini, Katerina Iliopoulou, Lenia Safiropoulou, Liana Sakelliou, Nikos Anastasopoulos, Pavlina Marvin, Stamatis Polenakis, Stergios Mitas, Christos Siorikis.


Errikos Sofras, a well-known translator of Dickinson’s work, will open the event with a reading from one of the poets’ letters.
