P.C. Evans & Dutch Poets: StAnza Festival

Saturday 12 Mar 2022, 16:15 to 17:15



An event celebrating newly translated poetry from the Netherlands, involving poets who tell stories in fascinating and diverse ways. P. C. Evans's anthology Grand Larcenies offers 'translations and imitations' of ten Dutch poets. Evans will read from the work of Hans Vlek, whose character monologues in an array of voices are set in antiquity and the developing world, and comment on the contemporary west. He's joined by K. Michel, whose poem sequences tell stories via a collaging effect, by turns philosophical, comical and absurd. Completing the line-up is Radna Fabias, an Antillean-Dutch poet, whose debut collection, Habitus, is translated into English by David Colmer. Fabias's montage style captures life on Curaçao, facing away from the self and stylistically echoing the mood of the American Beats.

This ticket provides online access to the event via the StAnza website and on our YouTube channel.

Supported by the Dutch Foundation for Literature
