Ars Poetica

A poetry collection from the 1st International Poetry Translation Workshop that took place in Lefkes on the island of Paros in August 2011.

The volume presents poems by 11 Greek and foreign poets and their English and Greek translations.

Ars Poetica presents the outcome of the 1st International Poetry Translation Workshop, which took place at the House of Literature in the village Lefkes of Paros in August 2011. 

Once a year, English-and Greek-speaking poets meet to discuss their work and translate each other’s poems.

This volume presents the work of the 11 poets who took part in the workshop in their original language, as well as their translation into Greek and English which their fellow poets, along with two literary translators, provided. The poems cover a variety of concerns and philosophical questions on the human experience, inviting the reader to reflection and self-examination.
