The Catalan writer Eva Baltasar came to visit us at QMUL. We read and discussed her beautiful novel “Permafrost” 😍
The author herself read fragments from the original version in Catalan, published by El Club Editor, and our PhD student, Charlotte Byrne, read the English translation, edited by And Other Stories.
Questions and comments followed, accompanied with Catalan wine and cava.
JOAN BROSSA’S FIRST BOOK OF POETRY PUBLISHED IN ENGLISH!
We had readings, films, and reminiscences from people who knew the man. The translator Cameron Griffiths talked about how he took on the task of turning Catalan into English and Stephen Watts performed his specially commissioned piece in response to Brossa’s world.
