Poetry reading and discussion: Poetics between languages: the Turkish-German experience
This is the archive of a poetry reading and discussion given by Zafer Senocak, born in Ankara in 1961. Zafer Senocak has been living in Germany since 1970, where he has become a leading voice in the German discussions on multiculturalism, national and cultural identity, and a mediator between Turkish and German culture. Elizabeth Oehlkers Wright has been translating Zafer Senocak and other contemporary German poets for years. Door Languages, a selection of Senocak's poems in her translation was published by Zephyr Press in Fall 2008. Moderator: Askold Melnyczuk, founder and former editor of AGNI, professor at UMass Boston and in Bennington’s MFA program, and author of the new Europe-trotting, gripping, noirish family mystery The House of Widows. This talk originally aired on WBUR's World of Ideas. Watch video on BUniverse at http://www.bu.edu/buniverse/view/?v=16wf4p81.
