The reading event Trilengua closes its 2010/11season in style by hosting Bill Bissett and Adeena Karasick, two poets on a major tour of Europe and Russia.
Poet Bissett can appropriately be described as a legend. Named by Jack Kerouac as "the greatest living poet today" in a Paris Review article, similar plaudits have been delivered by Margaret Atwood and James Reaney (who said that Bissett is "a one-man culture"). Bissett not only has awards to his name, but also an incredible 75 books of poetry published, all produced (and later performed) in his unique style, where the visual and aural are as important as the written word. He is renowned for his live performances where his experience as a lyricist and singer add to the theatricals.
No less successful, Karasick is an award-winning poet and performance artist with seven books of poetry and poetic theory published, and a string of international performances already under her belt.
The two writers will be promoting their respective latest publications, Amuse Bouche for Karasick and time by Bissett. This will certainly be a must-see for poetry, literature and performance art enthusiasts alike.
