Poet in the City was delighted to present an important series celebrating the very best of contemporary European Poetry.

Elena Buia Rutt was born in 1971 and lives in Rome. She collaborated with her husband, Andrew Rutt, to translate the poems of Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, into Italian (La dodicesima notte, Ancora, 2008). Her other translations include a book of poems by Jesuits priests (Al Dio sempre più grande, Ancora, 2010); a volume of texts by Flannery O'Connor (Il volto incompiuto, Rizzoli, 2011), and a selection of poems by the American poet Mary Oliver (Testo a fronte, 2013). Her first book of poems (Ti stringo la mano mentre dormi, Fuorilinea) was published in 2012.

In partnership with The School of European Languages, Culture and Society at UCL, the Contemporary European Poets series brings to London celebrated poets from Hungary, Holland, France, Germany, the Faroe Islands and Italy, for showcase events at Europe House. Events will include live readings by the poets, with all poems read both in the original language and in brand new specially commissioned English translations.
