Cees Nooteboom and Carmen Ollé in conversation with Martín Zúñiga

Let’s talk about poetry

Arequipa 2017, 

When it comes to the art of writing poetry there are as many truths as there are true poets. This event features the Dutch writer Cees Nooteboom, who says that poetry lies at the centre of all that he does. His body of work, which contains more than fifty books and includes novels and travel writing, has won him several international prizes. He is accompanied by the Peruvian poet Carmen Ollé, who was acclaimed by critics after the publication of her poetry book Noches de adrenalina in 1981. Both writers will talk to Martín Zúñiga (Peru), the author of a number of poetry books and who in 2011 published an anthology of young Arequipa poets entitled Rastros/Rostros.
