This annual event, celebrating untranslated poetry from around the world, is an aural delight. The rhythms and cadences of languages with which we may be unfamiliar can transform us to other places.
At this time, we have readers signed up for French, German, Dutch, Friesian, Arabic, Hindi, and Portuguese.
With roughly 6,500 languages spoken globally, this represents a mere thousandth of the possibilities.
We are still accepting readers of any language aside from English to share a poem on Tuesday. You needn’t be fluent in the language, merely capable of reading it aloud.
