The fourth event in the Deciphering the Alhambra series that celebrated the poetry, architecture and music of Andalucia, the beautiful southern region of Spain, still haunted by its Moorish past.

Antonio Carvajal (b. 1943) is one of Spain’s most celebrated poets, a star of the Generation of 1970. From his first poetic collection, Tigres en el jardín (Tigers in the Garden, 1968) to his most recent, Cartas a los amigos (Letters to Friends, 2009), Carvajal has experimented with the complex techniques of Spanish Golden Age poetry while staying true to the roots of popular Andalusian poetry.

Metaphysical yet sensual, Carvajal’s poetry delights the ear as much as the mind.

The series was presented by Professor Stephen Hart of University College London, and hosted by the Instituto Cervantes, the official Spanish language and cultural organisation.
