"Modern Greece in foreign poetry": 15 translators present poems featuring Modern Greece, translated from other languages...

17 translators present poems featuring Modern Greece at the Hellenic American Union

The Hellenic American Union and “Words (can) do it” celebrate March, the “Month of Poetry” with an online event dedicated to foreign poetry featuring Modern Greece.

The event continues the pairing of the 10th anniversary of "Words (can) do it" with a celebration, albeit indirect through poetry, of the bicentennial of the Greek War of Independence. In this case, 15 translators of poetry from six foreign languages translate poems written after 1821 that highlight Greece. All poems emphasize on the modern era of Greece or feature aspects of Ancient Greece that have survived but transcend mythology or tragedy, i.e. features aspects that have not become common ground for world culture.

Participating in the event, are the poets: Dimitris Allos, Orpheas Apergis, Phoebe Giannisi, Giannis Doukas, Lefteris Zacharioudakis, Panayotis Ioannidis, Lena Κallergi, Dimitra Kotoula, Aspasia Lamprinidou, Memi Melissaratou, Margaret Mellberg, Iana Boukova, Christiana Mygdali, Olga Papakosta and Kostas Plisiotis.

The event will premiere on Tuesday March 23, 2021 at 19:30 on the Hellenic American Union YouTube channel,  Facebook page and the You Tube channel of Words (can) do it.
