Pablo-Neruda Earls Court Life

Coffee House Poetry: The Troubadour – Earls Court Life

Posted by Caroline Lofts

The Troubadour in Earls Court presents The Magic of Realism: Neruda, Vallejo & Paz with C.l. Dallat (In The Gallery).

I’ll die in Paris in a shower of rain/ On a day I already remember (Vallejo); Hammers pound there above/ pulverized voices/ from the top of the afternoon (Paz); Taut and dry Spain was/ a day’s drum of dull sound (Neruda)…

Discover three major Latin American poets (in translation), all three major world artists engaging with the local and universal, each from a particular perspective, Peruvian, Chilean or Mexican, yet all approachable, immediate, profoundly influential: a chance to spend Sunday in Santiago, Lima, Mexico City, the world…

With Cahal Dallat, poet, musician & critic, b. Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, has written on contemporary poetry for Guardian, TLS, Poetry Review, Wasafiri, Poetry Ireland Review, Poetry London & The North (among others): a regular contributor toSaturday Review (BBC R4) over the past 15 years, he has won the Strokestown International Poetry Competition & his latest collection is The Year of Not Dancing (Blackstaff, 2009).
