Pablo Neruda evening at the Roundhouse in London on October 19, 2010

October 5, 2010

I am organising an evening at London’s Roundhouse on October 19,2010 dedicated to exploring the life of the Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, examining his current relevance, and commemorating – with unique film and recording – his historic Roundhouse recital of 40 years ago.
Here’s what the official Roundhouse website says:

This event includes fascinating insights and anecdotes by Adam Feinstein – Neruda’s acclaimed biographer – together with recollections of Neruda by his friend, and leading British expert on his poetry, Dr Robert Pring-Mill, filmed shortly before his death in 2005.

Readings of Neruda’s poems are provided by (amongst others) Mary Gifford-Brown, Lucy Tregear and Alfredo Cordal, with additional extracts of Neruda himself reading poems filmed and recorded at the Roundhouse 40 years ago.

Please let anyone else know who may be interested.

Best wishes,

Adam Feinstein
