Miguel Hernandez

Miguel Hernandez

This year is the 100th birthday of Miguel Hernandez, the “people’s poet”, as they call it in Spain. He was born in Orihuela, south of Alicante province. As you might imagine, this anniversary is very important for the people of the Region of Valencia, especially in the province of Alicante.

Next Friday, November 26th, Casa de la Cultura of Javea will hold a reading of Miguel Hernandez poetry with music. This recital/reading with music will be directed and produced by Germain Droogenbroodt. It will be read not only in Spanish but also in Dutch and German.

Miguel Hernandez’s life –like Federico Garcia Lorca- was prematurely interrupted by the cruel Spanish Civil War.

After his death, his works increasingly received international recognition. Right now, he is a widely studied writer in Spanish literature.

Time: 20:00 h.
