Like music and dance, poetry is an art that antedates our secular civilization, and it has always borne the marks of its origin as a means by which to approach and praise the divine. The poems in this volume, drawn from cultures throughout the world, testify to the power of language to embody our profoundest spiritual needs, our most sacred aspirations.
More than 150 writers from 40 events will gather in New York City for PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, April 28 – May 4, 2014.
For its 10th anniversary, the festival celebrates those who have dared to stand ‘on the edge,’ risking their careers, and sometimes their lives, to speak out for their art and beliefs. Join us for a wide range of events, including debates, one-on-one conversations, participatory workshops and performances in venues throughout the city. Use the code PEN14 (use PEN2014 for events at The Public Theater) and receive a 20 percent discount on most events. www.worldvoicesfestival.org
