THE POET VICENTE ARAGUAS PRESENTS HIS LAST WORK

The Galician poet Vicente Araguas presents at the University Venue in Alicante his last work, Veinticuatro maneras de querer a Brian (Twenty four ways of loving Brian), which is published in bilingual edition (Spanish-Galician) by Huerga & Fierro. In this book, "the poet shares with the readers his knowledge and talent completely", explains Araguas. The event will take place on November 12th, at 8:15pm.

Vicente Araguas is as a long-distance runner but in poetry, in which he started as a singer-songwriter with the group Voces Ceibes. His first poetic work was Paisaxe de Glasgow (The landscape of Glasgow, 1978), a referent for the changing Galician poetry. Since then, he has published almost a dozen books (besides the novels), which are collected in Maneiras de querer (Ways of loving, 2006). Previously, Huerga & Fierro have presented a bilingual anthology of Araguas' poetic work Billarda (1999). Vicente Araguas is a columnist, a literary critic, a translator (of Derek Walcott or Seamus Heaney), a lecturer, a cultural activist, but above all he is a poet. Among other awards, Vicente Araguas has the Pedrón de Honra, the journalism award Reimóndez Portela and the gold medal of Ferrol city.

The entrance is free and limited to the room's capacity.
