Lisbon Revisited | Days of Poetry
Portuguese and foreign poets, some of them already well-known, others yet to be translated: encounters at Casa Fernando Pessoa between those who write and those who read poetry.
«Once more I see you – Lisbon, the Tagus and the rest»
With Álvaro de Campos’ poem in mind, we are resuming our international poetry encounters and will now present the first edition of Lisbon Revisited — Poetry Days, a programme of conversations and readings with poets from different places.
The 14 and 15 June are dates to mark in your agenda: poetry days to celebrate the 130th Pessoa’s birthday.
At 6.30 pm and 9.30 pm.

ABOUT THIS ENCOUNTER
«The poets were chosen with readers of Portuguese poetry in mind. At this first edition of the event, we will have a two-day programme divided equally between Portuguese and foreign poets.»
«I tried to choose poets of different genders and from several fields of writing, and, in the case of foreign poets, I was looking for a variety in their mother tongues. In future editions, we may make a choice based on affinities of language and origin, but this year I wanted diversity.»
Clara Riso, Director of Casa Fernando Pessoa
