Cambridge - Bejan Matur and Jen Hadfield: ‘If this is a lament’

Acclaimed Kurdish poet Bejan Matur presents If this is a lament, a new chapbook of her poems, with English translations by Jen Hadfield. Join us for an electrifying hour of poetry in Kurdish, Turkish and English, by a pair of poets whose work explores the language of landscape and of home. The reading will be followed by a Q&A.

If this is a lament was translated by Jen Hadfield working collaboratively with the translator and writer Canan Marasligil.

Presented in partnership with the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, with support from Arts Council England
