It is almost five years since Ars interpres  (both the journal and the festival) 
ceased its activities.  However, two new titles have been published recently, 
and this coming November an extra event with several Ars interpres authors 
will take place at Stockholm's Kulturhuset Stadsteratern (Biblioteket Plattan)
and S:ta Eugenia.  This will be a sort of two days mini-festival with a potential 
for injecting new life into the whole Ars interpres enterprise.  Participants 
will include Kjell Espmark, Mariela Griffor, Dipak Mazumdar, Lars Palm and 
Anna Alexandra Maria Brodsky.

Mariela Griffor, poet and publisher active in the USA, and the Swedish-
Bengali poet Dipak Mazumdar will present their books that were published 
recently by Ars interpres. Kjell Espmark, a member of the Swedish Academy,
will read several poems from his latest book published in the US by Mariela 
Griffor. Moreover, the Malmö poet, Lars Palm, and the daughter of the late 
Joseph Brodsky, Anna Sozzani-Brodsky, will discuss certain political and 
environmental issues, and will also read from their work.  The title of the 
mini-festival and its significance as viewed by the participants, will be 
explored during the event. 

Nov. 7 at 14.00 / Hosted by Bibliotek Plattan
Kulturhuset Sergels torg, 103 27 Stockholm, Sweden

A second reading, with Mariela Griffor and the chairman of the Nobel
committee Per Wästberg, will take place the day after at the main hall

International poetry festival to take place in Stockholm

The second Ars Interpres poetry festival will take place in Stockholm from 
5-9 October 2006. The festival brings together more than twenty poets from 
Sweden and nearly one dozen other countries for a series of literary events at 
several venues around the city. On the schedule is the chance to hear the fluid
words of live poetry aboard the ship Constantia.

The poets, who will read from their work, give talks and launch new bilingual 
collections of poetry, include John Kinsella, Ewa Lipska, Gunnar Harding, 
Aleksandr Kushner and Giannina Braschi. In addition to the readings on board, 
events will be happening at Kulturhuset, Svensk Tenn, Svensk Form, Polska 
Institutet, Stockholm University and other places in the city. All are free and 
open to the public. Sponsors of this year’s festival are the Swedish Academy, 
the Swedish Institute, Ports of Stockholm, Kulturrådet and Polska Institutet.

Ars Interpres Publications produces an annual journal as well as bilingual 
and trilingual books of poetry and organizes art exhibitions in addition to 
public readings. The first Ars Interpres festival took place in October 2004. 
It featured poets from around the world including award-winning writers Les 
Murray and Aris Fioretos. 

According to editor Alexander Deriev, the principal mission of the magazine 
and poetry festival is to “offer the best of poetry and translation in a very 
special, high-quality format to its immense audience.” Live readings by the 
poets themselves, Deriev continues, “remain something special. The spoken 
word allows us to see the poet’s world from within, and to experience the poet's
own sense of his or her work.”

The full schedule of events of the 2006 festival appears below as well as on 
the Ars Interpres website ( http://www.arsint.com/festival.html ), where short 
biographies and photos of the participants are also available.
