“Pou & Pou fan Poe” at La Pedrera, Barcelona

Included in the “Setmana de la Poesia” (week of poetry) festival in Barcelona yesterday “Pou & Pou fan Poe” was presented at la Pedrera, the famous Gaudi building in Barcelona. “Pou & Pou fan Poe” is a poetry and images event celebrating the poetry by Edgar Allan Poe.

Catalan poet Txema Martinez has just finished the first Catalan translation of all Poe poetry. To celebrate this moment a poetry show was held yesterday. A dramatized reading of Poe poems by actor Josep Maria Pou was accompanied by photographs by Jordi V. Pou projected on a large screen, to build a dialogue between the verses and images, in an attempt to update and claim Poe modernity.
