Description

Imagems 1 contains six statements by a European poet who challenges modernism and post-modernism alike and extends (beyond) both. Richard Berengarten takes as his twin cues a statement by his mentor and friend, Octavio Paz, "For the first time in our history we are contemporaries of all humanity", and a short poem by his other mentor, George Seferis. For Berengarten, shared humanity is the demanding, necessary and irreducible core of all poetics. And its key-of-keys is magnanimity.show more

About Richard Berengarten

Richard Berengarten (formerly known as Burns) was born in London in 1943, into a family of musicians. He has lived in Italy, Greece, the USA and Yugoslavia. His perspectives as a poet combine English, French, Mediterranean, Jewish, Slavic, American and Oriental influences. He deals equally with historical and political material, with inner worlds, and with relationships and everyday life. In the 1970s, he founded and ran the (now almost legendary) international Cambridge Poetry Festival. His work has been translated into 18 languages.show more
