Baltic Humanoids / Itämeren ihmiseläimet
Organized by: Noxlit / Sivuvalo
Moderator: José Luis Rico
Poets residing in Nordic and Baltic countries will read poetry in their original with Finnish and Spanish translation. The reading will be interspersed with a discussion on the current state of poetry in Finnish, Russian, and Spanish. A special attention will be allotted to the symbolic function of bodies, animals, objects, and landscapes as new modes of social critique and of describing an ongoing planetary transformation in poetry.
