I Know Soccer is huge---but


International Poetry Festival

"From 11–18 June 2010, poets from across the world – from Afghanistan to the United States, from Brazil to South Korea, from Sudan to Russia – will gather to attend the 41st annual Poetry International Festival in the City Theatre of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. This year, the festival will explore the boundaries and relationships between prose and poetry, and we’ll also be putting the spotlight on contemporary poetry from the United States."

“Imagination is not, as its etymology would suggest, the faculty of forming images of reality; it is rather the faculty of forming images which go beyond reality, which sing reality”

—Gaston Bachelard, On Poetic Imagination and Reverie (1987)
