Ernesto Cardenal: May 16, 2015

The Poetry Center in conjunction with the Flor y Canto Festival presents a bilingual reading by Ernesto Cardenal. As featured guest artist for the Flor y Canto Festival, the celebrated Nicaraguan poet-priest makes a rare Bay Area appearance, at the Brava Theater in San Francisco's Mission District, to read from his 1989 volume Cánto Cósmico [Cosmic Canticle, translated by John Lyons, Curstone Books, 2002] and from later poems that appear in his English-language volume of 90 new poems, The Origin of Species and Other Poems (Texas Tech University Press, 2011), also translated by John Lyons.
