L'Ete des poetes 2015 Poetry Festival
The Summer of Poets
From Thu, May 28, 2015 to Fri, May 29, 2015 ● at La Galerie

L'Été des poètes 2015 has been organised on 28–29 May 2015 at La Galerie. This page now hosts the proceedings and publications that are to be consulted for research and educational purposes.

Of a heart that becomes the locus of sentience, feelings and compassion for everyone who gleans, from the lips of a troubadour to a soliloquy that extirpates a malady – poetry, we believe, is warm – golden and summerly. Alliance Française de Dhaka is very proud to present the first edition of The Summer of Poets – L'Été des poètes 2015 in Bangladesh. We are calling out to the unafraid hearts of all the poets and poetry-lovers for a two-day poetry festival to share, exchange and augment our experiences with poetry, and how we continue to relate to poetry notwithstanding our social roles and typicality.

We are honoured to have Prof. Kaiser Haq as the festival-poet who will present his keynote on Influence of French Poetry on Bengali Literature. We are very happy to present (alphabetically) Prof. Anisuzzaman, Asad Chowdhury, Prof. Iffat Ara Nasreen Majid, Mofidul Hoque, Mohammad Nurul Huda, Moinuddin Khaled, Prof. Salimullah Khan, Suman Sajjad, and Syed Shamsul Haque. They will talk about how poetry inspires them ceaselessly, will read their favourite poems and share the thoughts behind them.

Open to all, L’Été des poètes 2015 is a poetry festival for everyone who loves poetry. Engage yourself with many edifying events like poetry-tree installation, recitation, poetry slam, discussion, film show, quiz, and many more.
