Kudos to Department of Modern Languages and Literature’s Interim Department Chair, Dr. Santiago Daydi-Tolson, whose article has recently been published in La diversidad en la literatura, el cine y la prensa Española contemporánea (Andavira Editora: Santiago de Compostela)
“Valente ante la diversidad estética” by Daydi-Tolson, explores the poetic work of José Ángel Valente, one of the best-known Spanish poets of the Generation of 1950. Developed from a talk he presented at an international conference at Cambridge University in June 2015, Daydi-Tolson was inspired by the topics of Spanish literature, film, and journalism.
“A poet essayist and translator, Valente was well versed in the aesthetics of contemporary Europe. He taught in England in his youth and lived most of his mature life in Switzerland, Italy, and France. Several times he visited Latin America, Chile, in particular to remain a close relationship with his family,” elaborates Daydi-Tolson.
The book is available online from Andavira Editora.
