Londres celebra la nueva traducción de la poesía de Rubén Darío a cargo del hispanista Feinstein

El recital bilingüe, organizado por el Instituto Cervantes de Londres, contó con el apoyo de la Embajada de Nicaragua y la presencia de embajadores hispanoamericanos

 El Instituto Cervantes de Londres acogió una lectura de poesía del poeta nicaragüense Rubén Darío a cargo del reconocido hispanista Adam Feinstein, en un acto que sirvió de prelanzamiento de la obra que llevará por título,  “Found in Translation: New Versions of Rubén Darío» y que contó con el apoyo de la Embajada de Nicaragua.

A la conferencia acudieron la Embajadora de Nicaragua en Reino Unido, Guisell Morales Echaverry; el director del Instituto Cervantes en Londres, Ignacio Peyró; la actriz María Estévez-Serrano, quien recitó versos de Darío en español durante el acto; así como la embajadora de Cuba en Reino Unido, Teresita de Jesus Vicente Sotolongo; y el embajador de Guatemala en Reino Unido, Acisclo Valladares Molina.

Morales Echaverry agradeció el trabajo y esfuerzo de Feinstein para traer a Darío al idioma de Shakespeare. Por su parte, el director del Instituto Cervantes de Londres destacó a Rubén Darío como uno de los poetas más importantes de la lengua castellana y como Feinstein ha hecho “un gran trabajo al traducir su ritmo y su lenguaje únicos”. 

En la misma línea, Feinstein destacó la importancia del poeta nicaragüense y leyó una selección de sus traducciones de los poemas al inglés. Su nueva obra será una edición bilingüe de distintos trabajos de poesía de todas las etapas de la vida de Darío, que se publicará en Nicaragua y en el Reino Unido a principios de 2020. “Tuve la suerte de estar en Nicaragua en Febrero de este año, y la influencia de Rubén Darío se vive en todas partes  del país, así como en todo el mundo hispanoparlante”, dijo Feinstein.

Feinstein, nacido en Cambridge, publicó la  aclamada biografía, Pablo Neruda: A Passion for Life (Pablo Neruda: Una pasión por la vida), publicada por Bloomsbury en 2004. También escribió la introducción a la edición inglesa de Laberintos de Jorge Luis Borges (The Folio Society, 2007).

Reclining male sculptures: The mesoamerican Chacmool

 Lecture

 One of the most distinctive types of Mesoamerican sculptures is that called Chacmool, representing reclining human figures holding vessels on the stomach. Chacmools have been found in Central and West Mexico as well as in the Maya region. 

What was their function among the Toltecs, Maya and the Aztecs? Did they serve as platforms for human sacrifice or just to place offerings in the vessels? Why are they all male sculptures? These reclining sculptures became one of the most important sources of inspiration in the work of Henry Moore.
 

Elizabeth Baquedano has written several books and articles on the Aztecs, and curated an exhibition for Henry Moore’s Centenary at the University of East Anglia, Norwich. She is a lecturer at University College London, Institute of Archaeology and at the Institute for the Study of the Americas.
