Plath & Hughes Poetry in Struga, Macedonia

From Kristina "The Macedonian Messenger" Zimbakova...

There will be a poetry performance dedicated to Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, starting at midnight on Aug 20th within the ‘Night without Punctuation’ of Struga Poetry Evenings, held in Struga, Macedonia, from August 19th through 22nd 2010. The poetry will be performed by the Macedonian poet Irena Pavlova De Odorico.

In 1994 Ted Hughes was the Golden Wreath award winner of Struga Poetry Evenings, and, as the practice is, he personally received the award. This prestigious award is presented to a world renowned living poet for his poetry and his deed. The festival, which began in 1962, is one of the most distinguished international poetry festivals in the world. It is organized annually in the town of Struga, located at Lake Ohrid, the oldest lake in Europe.
