European Poetry Festival presents EUROPOE : an anthology
An anthology that celebrates the grand resurgence in avant-garde and literary poetry that has marked the 21st century in Europe. A volume that seeks not to offer a taxonomy but a brief glimpse of the burning brilliance of so many poets working at language, unified in this book only by a remarkable fidelity to that which is contemporary, amorphously continental and innovative. Over fifty poets from twenty nations share works translated into English, with poems drawing on the lyric, sonic, visual, asemic, conceptual and linguistic traditions. A book that showcases poets who are often on the margins of their own nations poetry culture, precisely because their work is forward looking and challenging, alongside some of the most renowned names in Europe, EUROPOE is a book marking a moment in time.
