Raúl Zurita (via Skype) and Anna Deeny Morales
Bilingual Poetry reading and lecture

Raúl Zurita is one of the most well-known and internationally respected contemporary poets working in Latin America today. His work bridges avant-garde poetics and the visual arts; furthermore, his book Purgatorio remains one of the most important poetic responses to the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile. Purgatorio was translated into English by Anna Deeny, who works closely with Zurita.

The visit is sponsored by College of Arts and Sciences Program grant, Romance Languages, Oregon Humanities Center, UO Translation Group, Comparative Literature, Latin American Studies, and the Center for Latino and Latin American Studies.
