List of years in poetry (table)
In literature



  • Poetry International started by Ted Hughes and Patrick Garland[1]
  • May 16 – the premiere at Taganka Theater in Moscow of the staged a poetical performance Послушайте! ("Listen!"), based on the works of Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky. The show was in repertoire until April 1984, was revived in May 1987 and again in repertoire until June 1989.[2]
  • Soviet authorities, acting through the Union of Soviet Writers, denied popular Russian poet Andrei Voznesensky permission to visit New York for a poetry reading at Lincoln Center, apparently because of remarks the poet made on a previous U.S. visit that were deemed pro-American, although the official reason was that Voznesensky's health was too poor for him to travel. In response, Voznesensky excoriated the literary union in a letter he sent to Pravda, which the newspaper refused to publish. Nevertheless, copies of the letter, accusing the literary-union authorities of "lies, lies, lies, bad manners and lies", were distributed widely in literary circles. On July 2, Voznesensky strongly criticized the literary union in a poem he read at the Taganka Theater in Moscow. The union demanded a retraction, but he refused. According to Voznesensky's 2010 obituary in the Times, "The issue was ultimately smoothed over".[3]
  • New Writers Press is founded by poets Michael Smith and Trevor Joyce with Smith's wife Irene in Dublin to publish poetry.
