ICC Writing Day
It’s a great pleasure to welcome the Mexican poet and scholar Mario Murgia to the ICCW programme, to speak on this theme: If ‘creative writing’ were only ‘the art of making things up’, where would that leave works that feed off, and indeed originate in, previously-created literary and poetical endeavours? What is the role of translation, for example, in shaping the canon(s) of writing and reading poetry in the West? Parting from a number of possible answers to these questions, and using examples of his own translated poetry – as well as John Milton's and García Lorca’s – Mario will discuss the manners in which creative writing and translation overlap, both practically and intellectually, in the craft of the poet.
