Welsh poets meet their Belgian counterparts
Wales has one of the oldest and most vigorous traditions of bards in Europe. On the occasion of the European Cultural Council in November, Het beschrijf is inviting you to Passa Porta to make the acquaintance of the well-known Welsh poets Richard Gwyn, Gwyneth Lewis and Patrick McGuinness. They will read from their own work and will meet three Belgian poets, Benno Barnard, Eva Cox and Erik Spinoy, whom they got to know at a translation workshop. Language and identity are undoubtedly one of the common themes that unite these poets from Wales and Belgium. Richard Gwyn is also resident in Flanders as our guest throughout November
