Poetry Across Languages at the People's Poetry Gathering
Robert Bly will open the 2006 People’s Poetry Gathering with a presentation about the role poetry plays in world languages, literature, and cultural understanding. He will read and discuss his poetry and translations.
The People’s Poetry Gathering was co-founded by Poets House and City Lore in 1999 and co-produced in 1999, 2001, and 2003. Poets House is pleased to co-sponsor this year’s keynote address. See www.peoplespoetry.org for a full schedule.
