Poetry Weekend at Lancaster Literature Festival: A New Divan lyrical dialogue between East and West

By newdivan 24th January 2020

We are delighted to welcome Tara Bergin, Paul Farley and Sean O’Brien to read their English versions of poems by Angélica Freitas, Raoul Schrott and Gilles Ortlieb which they created for the New Divan project. Delphine Grass and Emily Spiers, of the Department of Languages and Cultures at Lancaster University, among others; will read the poems in the original languages, including work by Homero Aridjis, Mourid Barghouti and Gonca Özmen. The event will be moderated by Bill Swainson, one of A New Divan’s two editors.
