Event Details

Come down and bring your lunch for a midday literary reflection brought to you by the Center for the Art of Translation.

In this Lit+Lunch, Pulitzer Prize-nominated poet and translator Cyrus Cassells talks about his new translations of this illustrious figure, Still Life with Children: Selected Poems of Francesc Parcerisas. A writer who is also an actor, Cassells promises to offer a dynamic, lively afternoon of literature.

Imagine beginning your career as a poet just as a national ban on your language is being lifted. That’s just what happened to renowned Catalan poet Francesc Parcerisas, who came of age just as the dictator Francisco Franco was losing his grip on power in Spain. Parcerisas went on to become both a celebrated poet and a prolific translator, bringing Conrad, Fitzgerald, Poe, Pound, Rimbaud, and even The Lord of the Rings to Catalonia..
