Roni Margulies

(Turkey, 1955)
 

At Poetry International’s recommendation, the Turkish poet Roni Margulies is writer in residence in Rotterdam South this year. With eyes and ears open, this nearly photographic observer will bring home his impressions of the city in wonderful poetry. Margulies is fascinated by the past. Themes of identity, migration, borders, language, and oppression also recur in his work. Subtle, and in clear language, he writes about major events through small observations. What strikes him about the port city? How will he write about it? His performance at the Poetry International Festival will conclude his residency. It will be a happy reunion, as he also attended the Festival in 2008.
