Parnassus Summary


Parnassus by David Constantine

This issue will be largely given over to a collaboration with 'Poetry Parnassus' - the Southbank Centre's celebration of the 2012 London Olympics. Poets from all participating countries will be invited to London and MPT will publish a selection of translations of their poems. Poetry Parnassus marks the first time that so many poets from so many parts of the planet have convereged in one place; it is a monumental poetic happening worthy of the spirit and history of the Olympics. 'My hunch is this will be the biggest poetry event ever - a truly global coming together of poets' (Simon Armitage, the poet behind the idea and Artist in Residence at Southbank Centre) The issue will be enhanced with other translated poems, brief essays, anecdotes and images concerned, in whatever fashion, with the Games (ancient or modern) or with Parnassus, home of the Muses. Parnassus was a sacred site for the whole Greek world; Delphi, below that mountain, was 'the navel of the earth'; for the duration of the Olympics a truce was declared so that athletes could come and go safely. The modern Olympics are world - wide. MPT 3/17 will be just as extensive and various.
