My talks on Neruda’s last days at the wonderful El Sueño Existe festival in Machynlleth, north Wales

August 25, 2011

Just to say that I gave two talks on Neruda’s last days at the magnificent El Sueño Existe festival in Machynlleth, north Wales, on Augsut 13 and 14, 2011.  I also read – in Spanish and English – what were probably two of the last poems Neruda ever wrote, both of them exquisite jewels.

This festival, organised by a friend of mine,  Tony Corden, is a superb mixture of Latin American music and poetry which takes place in the small Welsh town every two years.  I cannot recommend it too highly – give yourselves a treat next time!
