Harry Gilonis // Sean Bonney
Gilonis’ work spans decades of writing, composing and criticking, most recently producing some of the most crucial translations of Welsh, Irish, Chinese and Russian poetry on the black market. He has published reams, including (for starters) a stunning version of Mayakovsky’s “Order No. 2 to the Armies of the Arts” in Hi Zero 3.
Bonney is perhaps the foremost British poet of the violent fluctuations between activism and language, an arch and absolutely important thinker in verse that refuses to be thought without a fight. Sean’s _The Commons_ and _Happiness: Poems After Rimbaud_ are both out now.
Tuesday September 20th, The Hope, Queen’s Rd., Brighton. Ulli Freer, Samuel Solomon & Amy Evans. More at the Hi Zero! Facebook page.
