A BODY of water

A talk about water in poetry

Water is a recurring theme in the poetry of many poets. Water pops up as a metaphor, as a memory, as a connection to the homeland. Water trickles through the pages and takes on different appearances. During this program, festival poets pay tribute to water and talk about their relationship to the seas, oceans and rivers of their childhood and their present.
