Passwords: The Peacock’s Tail: An Evening of Poetry from Al-Andalus with Lourdes Alvarez
May 16, 2000 | 7:00 pm
“Islamic Spain is now remembered as a place where Muslims, Christians and Jews created a vibrant polyglot civilization. Hispano- Arabic poets sang of forbidden love in rhymes which drew on both Spanish and Arabic traditions. Lourdes Alvarez presents original English translations of Andalusian poems from the 10th-14th centuries, including Sufi verse and nostalgic laments for the waning of the golden years of that richly polyphonic society.”
