Roberto Bolaño garnered international attention for his novels and stories, and his influence on the world of fiction has been substantial and much discussed. But he was also, and formatively, a poet, and his work often deals with the lives of poets, including the infrarealist circle of his youth that included Bolaño’s close friend Mario Santiago Papasquiaro. What does Bolaño’s work as both novelist and poet mean and discover for contemporary poetry? This event will bring together experts and translators of Bolaño and others. We will begin with readings, including presentations of some of the participants’ own translations of Bolaño and Santiago, and move on to a panel discussion about the possibilities and implications of encounters with Bolaño’s poetic universe.
