An Oracle for Delphi

Apr 20, 2017

Presentation of the translation into Greek of the book by American poet Jerome Rothenberg...

The cover of the book "An Oracle for Delphi" presented at the Hellenic American Union

The Hellenic American Union and Hellenic American College (HAEC) in cooperation with Tipothito Publishers present the Greek translation of Jerome Rothenberg’s poetry book, in its recent bilingual edition.

The poems in the collection are Rothenberg’s notes from his tours in the ancient Helladic sites, and the poet urges readers to read them as such, highlighting the relations between anthropomorphic animals, zoomorphic people, talking stones, dance rituals and ongoing mediation of the dead everywhere.

Speaking at the event will be university professor and poet, Liana Sakelliou and poet and intermedia artist, Demosthenes Agrafiotis.  The translators of the book and poets, Maro Papadimitriou and Iosif Ventouras, will read poems.

The event will also include a performance by French poet, Serge Pey and Italian poet, Chiara Mulas.
