JOAN MARGARIT: POETRY, ARCHITECTURE AND TRANSLATION
The event will celebrate the English translation of Joan Margarit's book,New Letters to a Young Poet (Swan Isle Press, Chicago, 2011), as well as his life and work as a poet and architect.
"Award-winning Catalan poet Joan Margarit offers a passionate defense of poetry and of the intelligible poem- the well-made text that can provide refuge, wisdom,
and consolation. Inspired by Rilke's classic Letters to a Young Poet, this slender volume explores poetry as vocation, obsession, and partnership between writer and reader,a "road toward inner growth." - Midwest Book Review on New Letters to a Young Poet (Swan Isle Press, 2011)
