JOURNAL/REVISTA “HISPANIC HORIZON” (JNU Delhi), No. 27, 2009: OCTAVIO PAZ, JOSÉ MARTÍ, TAGORE, MANJU KAPUR ..

Just published is the 2009 issue (no 27) of HISPANIC HORIZON (ISSN 0907-7522), the journal (bilingual in English and Spanish, and this time with incursions into Hindi too) of the Centre of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Latin American Studies of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Delhi.

 

Among the highlights of this issue are two articles on Octavio Paz (‘Octavio Paz as a critic and connoisseur of art’ – Susnighda Dey and ‘Reading Octavio Paz Today’ – Indrani Mukherjee); a comparison of José Martí and Rabindranath Tagore (Preeti Pant), a re-reading of the famous picaresque novel ‘Lazarillo de Tormes’ (in Spanish – Nicolas Balutet), and a study of ‘The Spanish Civil War in its International Context’ (Joan Maria Thomas). There are three classic Latin American poems, by José Martí, Pablo Neruda and Octavio Paz, newly translated into Hindi. Also featured is a retrospective by Gokulananda Nandan looking back on the Centre’s activities since the last issue, with particular focus on the conference on ‘Multiculturalism in Spain’ held in January 2009 and organised jointly with the Universitat Rovira i Virgili of Tarragona.

 

Included too (pp. 80-107) is my own article: ‘Problems of translating Indian Writing in English into Spanish, with reference to "A Married Woman" by Manju Kapur’, which was given as a lecture at JNU in 2006 – see this blog, 15 March 2006 – and analyses the Spanish translation of that novel by Dora Sales Salvador, ‘Una mujer casada’
