Poéticas de la ciudad- El lenguaje urbano en la poesía peruana del siglo XX a talk by Carlos Villacorta

December 2nd, 2016
3:00 PM

100A Jones Hall, Greenleaf Conference Room

¿How poets represent the city, which they live in? ¿How are the languages of urban cultures? ¿What is known and what is secret in the city life? Carlos Villacorta will discuss these topics in the extensive, sophisticated, colloquial, and hermetic Peruvian poetry of the 20th century, one of the most notable poetic productions of the Spanish language.

Carlos Villacorta is a Peruvian writer and scholar. He is well known for his poetry books El grito (2001), Tríptico (2003) and Ciudad Satélite (2007), and for his novel Alicia, esto es el capitalismo (2014) which portraits the ups and downs of life of young people from Lima and has received praise. Some of his poems and short stories have been translated into English and French. In the USA, his works has been published in Hostos Review and Cutbank Magazine among others. He is currently assistant professor of Latin American literature at University of Maine and researches in this field. He has published scholarly articles on the works of Roberto Bolaño, Enrique Verástegui and Carmen Ollé.
