Against War | The Sound of Poetry 🕊️

The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics, 
Today’s issue is entirely dedicated to our Poetry Marathon Against War | The Sound of Poetry 🕊️ . From March 15, we have been sharing the readings of song lyrics from all over the world. We will keep doing so until March 21, on World Poetry Day, when we will celebrate at Scuola Holden at 9 PM in Turin. The event will feature readings and interviews with guests and experts addressing one question: can songs be considered as poetry?
The evening, in partnership with Tlon, will be full of surprises. You can tune in to Scuola Holden’s social media to watch the event online or call the number 011/6632812 to book your seat at the event.
From Bob Dylan, honored with the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016, to Raffaella Carrà, defined by The Guardian as “the Italian pop star who taught Europe the joy of sex”, from Édith Piaf to Paolo Conte, from the traditional songs of Asia to the Argentine tango, the poetry of song is everywhere and its power universal.
We are offering an overview of the most peculiar readings we have shared so far.
