Book Launch ‘Memory and Utopia’: Poetry of Jose Angel Valente

Lauded by many as one of twentieth-century Spain’s greatest poets, José Ángel Valente (1929–2000) remains one of the defining, if at times divisive, figures in Spanish poetry. O’Dwyer’s new study draws attention to the cultural and historical context within which Valente developed his sophisticated poetics, and seeks to counter a widespread view of him as a modern mystic, unconcerned with the political. Dr Manus O’Dwyer completed a doctoral dissertation on the work of José Ángel Valente at the University of Santiago de Compostela in 2016. He has taught at Trinity College Dublin, Durham University, and the University of Sheffield. Presented in English.
