British poet, editor, and translator Robin Ouzman Hislop read selections from his original and translated works in conversation with Antonio Martínez-Arboleda (University of Leeds). Organised by International Writers at Leeds. 10 October 2017, 6pm, Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre. Robin Ouzman Hislop is the current editor of Poetry Life & Times, and has published several books of poetry, including his most recent work Cartoon Molecules. As a translator, Robin has worked with poet and translator Amparo Arróspide to produce English-language versions of works by several Spanish poets, including Key of Mist by Guadalupe Grande and Tessarae by Carmen Crespo. In this event, Hislop and Martínez-Arboleda read extracts from Key of Mist and Tesserae in Spanish and English. After discussing these pieces, Hislop introduced his original works as a poet with All the Babble of the Souk and Cartoon Molecules. The translations by Martínez-Arboleda of two Hislop's poems into Spanish, published in the prestigious Spanish poetry journal Crátera, were presented and discussed.
