lyrikline blog


This is the blog of Lyrikline – Listen to the poet! – an international website for experiencing the diversity of contemporary poetry. There one can listen to the melodies, sounds, and rhythms of international poetry, recited by the authors themselves, and read the poems both in their original languages and various translations.

This project of Haus für Poesie and its partners makes poetry accessible and understandable for all, above and beyond national borders and language barriers. We can rely on a network of 46 international partners, who provide their knowledge on and connections to their countries’ poetry scenes to create national editions.

We started this blog in 2009 in order to share longer stories, essays and special features around World Poetry Day with you.
