Part of: Habib Tengour Tour Habib Tengour: Poetry Translation Breakfast - Ledbury Poetry Festival
The Poetry House
Habib Tengour, the poet, sociologist and anthropologist is one of the most visionary voices of post-colonial Algeria. His poetry is steeped in the imaginative and cultural geography of the Maghreb: exile and dislocation only serving to heighten its musical registers. The Poetry Translation Centre is delighted to present Consolatio, a new bilingual publication of English translations of poems from Tengour’s original collection of the same name. Consolatio has been translated collaboratively by UK poet Will Harris (RENDANG) and translator Delaina Haslam. Join Habib, Will and Delaina for readings from Consolatio in French and English, discussion about Habib’s life and work, and the collaborative process that Delaina and Will engaged in to produce the translations.
Habib Tengour's tour has been co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
