Poesía en Abril: Raúl Zurita

April 30, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Raúl Zurita is one of Latin America’s most celebrated and controversial poets. After Augusto Pinochet’s 1973 military coup, Zurita sought to register the violence and atrocities committed against the Chilean people with a trilogy of books (“Purgatory,” “Anteparadise,” and “The New Life”), large-scale poetic acts including poems bulldozed into the Chilean desert, and the art collective Colectivo de Accion de Arte.

Dominican poet, essayist, educator, and art critic Jeannette Miller is unfortunately no longer able to join us at this reading because of health reasons.
