EU-China-litfest 11: Poetry: A Painting that is Felt Rather than Seen

Katerina Rudcenkova (Czech Republic), Yu Yoyo (China)

Saturday, November 21. 5pm Beijing Time


Leonardo Da Vince said that, “A painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is a painting that is felt rather than seen.” Two esteemed female poets join us today to discuss their own work and what they perceive to be the visual and visceral capacities of poetry in the contemporary age. Acclaimed Czech writer Kateřina Rudčenková has published poetry, short stories and plays and had her work published into 20 languages. Yu Yoyo, from Sichuan in China, is seen as a representative voice among the post-90’s generation and her award-winning writing has been translated into English, Russian, Swedish, Japanese, French.
