Slovenian Poetry in Ballybane Library

Today, as part of the EC's ‘Communicating Europe Initiative’, Ballybane Public Library presents Slovenian poetry in translation with poet Yvonne Cullen. This is part of the project entitled 'Being Irish, Being European, Being Human' and involves placing works in translation by native writers of EU countries in selected libraries to promote public awareness of the literature and culture of countries within the EU.

Yvonne Cullen will be in Ballybane Library to present some Slovenian poetry in translation. The Slovenian poet Meta Kušar has written:
“I hear a soul crying poignantly outside the door, wanting to come in.” What world is it that the poetry of Meta Kušar and other Slovenian poets communicates? Meta Kušar writes about the self-regenerating power of life.
Yvonne Cullen promises a very interesting 40 minutes of the poetry of Slovenia. Please join us!
