Shakespeare. His Sonnets

This series took place onFrom to

Shakespeare wrote his own series of 154 sonnets, the first 126 addressed to a man and the rest a woman, thus inverting the predominant Petrachan tradition. His sonnets have been interpreted in various manners today: for some scholars, his sonnets are an autobiographical creation; for others, literary fiction that reflects the values and conventions of his time; while for many, they are the expression of a unique voice suggesting a very close presence and one that incites identification.

The university professor and translator Ángel-Luis Pujante, a Shakespeare specialist and winner of the Premio Nacional (National Prize) for the best translation, will give a conference and on the second he will make a presentation of a selection of sonnets, that will be recited by Tristán Ulloa and Elvira Mínguez
