Panic Cure: Poetry from Spain for the 21st Century

Four contemporary poets from Spain are celebrated at Brown University in a weekend of bilingual readings, discussions, and seminars on translation.

Brown University celebrates contemporary literature in Spain by bringing four innovative poets to campus to meet with students, scholars, professors, and the Ibero-American community.

The festival will culminate in two major evening readings, but will also include afternoon discussions and a seminar on translation. Main topics of discussion:

  • The role of anthologies in determining literary legacy in Spain.
  • The state of (overlapping) aesthetic, publishing, and linguistic communities of poets in Spain.
  • A consideration of what gets translated and why.

Participating Poets from Spain Pilar Fraile Amador, Dr. Marcos Canteli Vigón, Esther Ramón and Benito del Pliego.
