The Poetry Quartet

“At a time when the word literature is often used in public as a synonym for novels, it is important to bring the diversity of voices in contemporary German poetry into the public conversation.” (Heinrich Detering)

The Poetry Quartet, organised in cooperation with the Lyrik Kabinett in Munich, turns the talk to poetry. Three times a year, the panel of three critics – Heinrich Detering, Harald Hartung and Kristina Maidt-Zinke – plus a special guest meet to discuss four poetry books – three new publications and a classic.
