Event description: 

Join the Council on Latin American & Iberian Studies and the Yale Translation Initiative to welcome alumnus Adam Mahler back to Yale for a discussion related to a forthcoming book - a new translation of the 1920 book of poems by Portuguese symbolist poet, Camilo Pessanha, who resided in Macau for the last part of his life (1894-1926). The session will feature a reading of a selection of the original poems in Portuguese with Adam’s new translations. Yale Professor David Jackson wrote the introduction for the book, “Camilo Pessanha in Macau (1894-1926): Symbolism, Orientalism, Exile, Modernity in Clepsydra,” and will provide welcome remarks.
Peter Cole, Horace W. Goldsmith Senior Lecturer in Judaic Studies and Senior Lecturer in Comparative Literature at Yale, will moderate the event.
