Let’s imagine for a moment that you have been asked to programme two events at a poetry festival. You have an unlimited budget, but each event must contain only three poets.
For the first event you can invite three living poets from anywhere in the world to read together. Who would they be? And why would you invite them?
For the second event, you have been granted special powers to raise the dead. You can invite three dead poets from any time and any place. The event will involve a few poems being read, and a discussion between the three poets. Who would you invite? Excerpts from the imaginary discussion are also welcome, although not obligatory.
