Thursday August 1, 2013 at 6 p.m. on the first floor of the GoggleWorks featuring Turkish poet Tuğrul Tanyol

Join Berks Bards in welcoming Turkish poet Tuğrul Tanyol!

Tuğrul Tanyol is a well-known poet, critic and essayist in Turkey. He was born in 1953 in Istanbul and educated at the Catholic Lycée of St Joseph and the University of the Bosphorus. In 1985 he won the Necatıgıl Prize for poetry. To date he has published six books of poetry and written many reviews and critical essays. He teaches social sciences at the University of Marmara. His poetry is lyrical but controlled by a classical clarity. It has been said of him that 'he is a poet alive to the pitfalls of blind ideological allegiances'. He has been translated into Spanish, French and English and was the first Turkish poet to take part in the Trois Rivières poetry festival in Quebec.
