Poetry Parnassus: Maintenant Reading

Blue Room, Spirit Level, Southbank Centre, Tuesday 26 June 2012, 7:00pm

This reading celebrates some of the most vivid and exciting poets currently writing in Europe, all of whom have featured in the Maintenant interview series: Sylva Fischerová, Pekko Kappi, Christodoulos Makris, Damir Šodan, Serhij Zhadan, Kārlis Vērdiņš and Endre Ruset.

The Maintenant dictum has been to introduce poets who might lie outside of the Anglo-American scene, or be overlooked until they have reached the prominence of middle age, alongside great figures of the present day, who look eye to eye with their towering forebears. The reading is hosted in English by Steven Fowler.
