Grand Futurological Congress: Tõnis Vilu (Estonia)

Monday, May 6th
The University of Tartu Library conference hall

In the past fifteen years, Tõnis Vilu has been perhaps one the most influential poets in the Estonian literary landscape. He will deliver a presentation examining the development of a poet’s “late phase work” through various case studies, and why such a distinction arises. Can this life trajectory also be projected into the future – predicting a creative turning point? After the presentation, Vilu will converse with poet Jüri Kolk. The conversation will be in Estonian, with simultaneous interpretation into English.
