Moving Worlds Through Poetry

What does it feel like when an Irish poet hears him/herself in German or a German poet finds him/herself in English?

Is there more or less of you in the poem when it has run through the whole business of publishing not just once, but twice?

And do poems occupy different places in the world when they are read in different places in the world?

Come and listen to award-winning translator of poetry Professor Karen Leeder (Oxford) tease out the answers to these questions with Lancaster University’s Visiting Professor of Poetry Paul Muldoon and leading German publisher and poet Michael Krüger.

‘Translating Practices: Moving Worlds Through Poetry - a Conversation with Paul Muldoon and Michael Krüger’ will take place at The Storey in Meeting House Lane, Lancaster, on 25 January from 7.30pm to 9pm followed by a wine reception.

The free event is organised by Lancaster University’s Department of Languages and Cultures and the Department of English Literature & Creative Writing.

Tickets are available via Eventbrite (search ‘Paul Muldoon’) or for more information please contact Professor Rebecca Braun: r.braun [at] lancaster.ac (p) uk
