The next event organised by the French research and culture programme will be held on Tuesday November 5th
at the Red Deer (function room upstairs), from 5-7.
We will be reading and discussing poems by Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918), in French and in English translation and listening to musical adaptations of his poems. We will also be able to listen to a recording of the poet reciting one of his most famous pieces, Le Pont Mirabeau.
Those of you wanting to know more about Apollinaire and his most celebrated collection of poems, Alcools (to this date the best seller of the famous nrf-poésie collection) can listen to this radio programme on France Culture:
Photocopies of Apollinaire’s poems will be handed out tomorrow evening, but in case you want to read some in advance, they are widely available from the web (see http://www.toutelapoesie.com/poetes/guillaume_apollinaire.htm for example).
