Poetry in Translation at the Poetry Cafe, 22 Betterton Street, Covent Garden
One of the Brimstone Co-Directors, Robert Mules, alias Sebastian Hayes, been organizing a series of poetry readings at the Poetry Cafe, Covent Garden, entitled “The Trace They Wished to Leave” for the last two years. Meetings generally take place on the last Wednesday of the month always at 7.30, at the Poetry Cafe, 22 Betterton Street, Covent Garden. The Brimstone author, John Dewey, prior to the publication of his book on the Russian poet, Tyutchev, presented him at the very first meeting on January 27 2010. Since then, Sebastian Hayes has introduced a number of little known poets from various countries, ranging from as far afield as Mexico (Ulacia) to contemporary Iraq (Al-Sayyab and Al-Braikan).
The last event of the present series will be taking place on Wednesday 25th of this month.

Robert Yates will be presenting his recent translations of Arthur Rimbaud’s Illuminations, a work that was never published in the author’s lifetime (at least to the author’s knowledge)..
Robert Yates is a contemporary poet and has translated poetry from the French, German and Ancient Egyptian.
Cristina Viti will be presenting the work of the Italian visionary poet Dino Campana (1885 – 1932). Dino Campana only published one book of poetry, the Canti orfici (“Orphic Songs”). His personality is described as “wild and erratic”, like that of his mother. He is often seen as an Italian example of a poète maudit. He had an ill-fated, intense love affair with the Italian feminist author Sibilla Aleramo.
Cristina Viti is a poet and translator whose publications include Selected Works of Dino Campana (Survivors’ Press 2006), Stephen Watts’s Mountain Language/Lingua di montagna (Hearing Eye 2008) & Journey Across Breath/Viaggio nel respire (Hearing Eye 2011. Forthcoming translations include Dome Bulfaro’s collection Ossa Carne(Le voci della luna) & Mariapia Veladiano’s award-winning novel La vita accanto (MacLehose Press).
“The Trace They Wished to Leave”is a series organised by Sebastian Hayes, co-Director of Brimstone Press Ltd.
