EU-China-litfest 08: Echoes asking Shadows to Dance: Poets take the Floor

Carl Norac (Belgium), Huang Lihai (China)

 

Thursday, November 19. 7.30 pm Beijing Time


Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance, according to the legendary poet Carl Sandburg. Today Carl Norac, the National Poet of Belgium whose poetry and children’s books have been translated into 47 languages around the world, and Huang Lihai, a multiple award-winning and widely translated poet from Guangdong, will examine the concept of poetry and literature in the 21st century, and discuss how poets can paint vivid pictures with words and generate those echoes that invite shadows to dance. Moderated by Jiao Jingshu. (This event will be in Chinese and French.)
