Book launch: "Com espigues de blat amb vents de l'est"

Presentación del libro:

India, the most populated country of the world, with around 1200 million people, is still for many westerners quite an unknown or badly known place despite being one of the origins of the classical and world culture.

The volume that is presented, Com espigues de blat amb vents del’est, would like to be a short approach to the poetry made in two of the main languages of the Asian subcontinent: Hindi and English. Sameer Ramal, expert of the literatures currently produced in India and Catalonia, has made the selection and translation of the poems from Hindi into Catalan; Dolors Udina has approached us the poems in English. The work's result is this book: only a sample, but enough to stand out the high poetic level of this refined country.

The event will conclude with the reading of a selection of poems included in the volume.
