41 – Traitor or Translator

Why we must not untangle Pablo Neruda’s life from his work, nor the music from the poetry

A seminar by Adam Feinstein

As Neruda’s acclaimed biographer, Adam Feinstein, demonstrates in this seminar, the extraordinary life of the Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet was so intimately interwoven with his work that it is impossible to untangle them.

Feinstein illustrates with telling examples, including some of his own new English translations of Neruda’s celebrated poems.

Technical problems mean that, unfortunately the first few minutes and last few minutes of this event were not recorded.
