In recognition of world poetry day the students of the Diocesan Classical Gymnasium prepared a recital of ancient Roman poetry. The event took place in Dr. Anton Breznik Library on 21st March 2019. The passages from Ovid’s Art of Love and other pieces of poetry were read and interpreted by second year students. They proved that the theme of love and courtship have not changed much through times. It was a perfect and occasionally humorous celebration of the first spring day.
World Poetry Day was declared by UNESCO in 1999. Each year the focus is given on some particular poet and his/her works. One of the main objectives of the Day is to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression. In celebrating the occasion the school community recognizes the outstanding ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind. /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
