Poetic encounters: “Words (can) do it”

Jan 23, 2019

From Whitman to Plath: Event dedicated to translations of English poetry...

Poetry night "From Whitman to Plath" at the Hellenic American Union

Through their translations, Katerina Iliopoulou and Eleni Iliopoulou introduce the audience to English poetry, starting off with Walt Whitman's work and reaching to Sylvia Plath, while making "in-between stops" to Mina Loy, Ted Hughes and others. Some of these translations have already been published, such as Plath’s collection of poems, Ariel (2012) and Poems (2003) and an extensive anthology of poems from Whitman’s collection Leaves of Grass is expected to be published soon.

Adrianne Kalfopoulou and Chris Sakellaridis read the original poems in English.
