The never-fading star

15 - 31 May


The oeuvre of Luis de Góngora (1561–1627) is an unavoidable reference within the history of Spanish literature. Its towering ambition, its intricacy and relevance to our time make Góngora’s poetry comparable to the contributions of Shakespeare to the theatre and of Cervantes to the novel.

Góngora: the never-fading star. Aesthetic Magnitude and Contemporary Universe is curated by Joaquin Roses and brought to Queen’s by Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), the Office for Cultural and Scientific Affairs (Embassy of Spain) and the Naughton Gallery (Lanyon Building, Queen’s University Belfast). It offers, through graphic exhibition panels, an overview of the stature of this unique poet and his influence on world literature. The four areas of the exhibition will immerse the viewer in the universe of the Andalucian poet; visitors can browse the Chacón manuscript on a touchscreen and listen to Spanish poems recited in a video.
