About the event
Robert Hass at the 23rd Aldeburgh Poetry Festival.
Lecture: Miłosz and Contradiction – Pushing against the limits of the lyric. Czesław Miłosz (1911-2004) survived the Russian Revolution, the depression and holocaust in Poland, the cold war in France. During those years and in his long exile in California he wrote some of the indelible short poems of the twentieth century. Robert Hass, who worked with Miłosz on their English translation, discusses the formal limitations he struggled with, as he tried to do justice to the history he had witnessed. Tickets £9.
