About 60 people came to the Deutsches Literaturinstitut Leizig this week to listen to a reading of Picador Guest Professor Christian Hawkey. Hawkey is one of the most succesful contemporary poets writing in a surrealist mode. During the reading he was joined by his wife Uljana Wolf, a poet herself. Both of them read from their most recents publications, Hawkey from Citizien Of and Wolf from Falsche Freunde. Towards the end the two authors also introduced their new joint project: a conversion of Elizabeth Barret-Browning's Sonnets from the Portuguese and Rainer Maria Rolke's German translation of it. Hawkey currently teaches two courses on poetry as Picador Guest Professor at the Institute for American Studies.
