The final event of 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.

Milena Rodríguez, a poet and an essayist born in Havana in 1971, has lived in Granada since 1997. Her poetry, which includes El pan nuestro de cada día (Our Daily Bread, 1998); Alicia en el País de Lo Ya Visto (Alice in the Never-Seen-Land, 2001) and El otro lado (The Other Side, 2006) is playful, witty and down-to-earth. It exposes the foibles of patriarchy, rejects history in favour of ‘herstory’, and has political bite.

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.
