Poetry - Arados
Arados emerged in 2009 from informal exchanges at Adam Mickiewicz Univeristy, Poznań, Poland between members of staff from the Romanian and Celtic Departments. The society meets to read and discuss poetry and lyrics in the languages of the Romance, Celtic and Slavic countries. Arados derives its name from a poem called Pluguri' ('Ploughs) by Romanian poet Lucian Blaga. The word for plough in Latin is ‘aratrum’, a word perserved today in various forms in languages from Wales to Romania. Arados's first project was The Birth of Trystan (See menu under Books of Poetry), a book by Diarmuid Johnson and Emilia Ivancu. The society is currently (2012) involved in translating the work of Lucian Blaga. See Arados Projects for more information.
