The Hungarian Yeats Society (HYS) hosts a series of events commemorating the 150th anniversary of Yeats’s birth.
As part of the Yeats Reborn Poject, (HYS) announced its Yeats translation project would conclude in the launch of a Yeats-volume of a literary journal (“Napút”) sharing the best translations with Hungarian readers.
A conference entitled “Yeats Today” will take place on 29th April, 2015 in Budapest. The conference will include a plenary lecture by Margaret Mills Harper (Glucksman Professor, University of Limerick). Papers in English or Hungarian are invited on any aspect of Yeats’s oeuvre and its contemporary relevance. Also welcome are papers that consider Yeats’s influence on, or affinities with, Hungarian literature and/or individual writers. Abstracts of 200-250 words should be sent by March 1 to YeatsHungary@gmail.com. For more details, please see the CFP here.
The conference will be followed by the launch of the Yeats volume and musical recitals. On the following day one of Yeats’s plays will be staged in Hungarian.
