“It’s a strange thing to be a poet”: an evening with Miguel d’Ors
Co-hosted by the Centre for Poetic Innovation
Miguel d’Ors is one of Spain’s foremost contemporary poets. He has published 13 books of poetry, which have recently been collected in the volume Poesías completas 2019.
Varied and diverse in terms of its themes, tones, influences and approaches ¬-(albeit, at the same time, profoundly unitary and coherent), his poetry is always distinctive, precise and memorable. In a rare visit to Scotland, the author will read a selection of his poems and discuss his work with Javier Letrán (School of Modern Languages), who teaches and researches on Contemporary Spanish Literature. Max Gilligan, a student of Spanish, will provide English translations.
