La otra poesía
Centre Cultural Blanquerna
La Otra Poesía (‘The Other Poetry’) was a series of poetry readings held in Madrid. The poems were by Catalan authors who are unknown for many in Spain – poets who are social outsiders in Catalonia because of their turbulent personal lives. In Madrid, people are familiar with Maragall, Espriu, and other traditional Catalan poets. We superimpose the contemporary on the traditional to convey the message that the quality of work by present-day poets is comparable to that of classical authors.
