Amber Road: New Readings from Europe’s Most Archaic Pagan Literature

For the past two years, local poet and scholar Steven Posch has been engaged in the translation and interpretation of the little-known dainas (“songs”) of Latvia. Though collected in the 19th and early 20th centuries, these witty, exuberant, and poignant folk-poems enable the listener to enter into the truly archaic and wholly pagan mindscape of our most ancient ancestors. A one-time event: not to be missed! ‘[The dainas] have a beauty and primitive splendor above anything I know in Western literature….They seem to have been written at the morning of the world, and the dew is still on them.’ Robert Payne Keeper of the Minnesota Ooser, Steven Posch is one of the Twin Cities' foremost men-in-black.
