Mediterranean Poems on lyrikline.org

Posted in about us by Heiko Strunk on 1. June 2010

A selection of poems that can all be found on lyrikline is presented on this map which we made for all those who would like to get in the right mood for this year’s poesiefestival berlin focusing on the Mediterranean. It’s also for all of you who would like to be be in Berlin to see all the poets from this region but can not and generally it’s for everyone who is interested in Mediterranean poetry and is waiting for the summer to come.

We selected poems about the sea, especially the Mediterranean, portraits of cities in the region as well as poems that convey the atmosphere of this big and culturally and historically important region. The poems we selected were mainly written by poets from the riparian states of the Mediterranean but there are also some from other areas of the world who got inspired by the Mediterranean.

    Hallo, today I received the facebook feed about Uruguay and Dutch
    (http://lyrikline.org/index.php?id=162&L=1&author=ja01&show=Poems&poemId=5294&cHash=ae1db2c111) poets. Again I missed the button on your website to search for poets per country. I can find poets names alphabetically and per language, however not per nationality. In some cases this would be really helpful. Would the sorting according to country be really that difficult since you do sort them already????
    Looking fwd to hearing from you.Regards, Ginster
