The famous Spanish poet Federico García Lorca once said that poetry does not need followers, but lovers!
In Hispania, escuela de español, we fully agree with his idea and that is the reason why we have created a wonderful poetry workshop so that those who love this art can really enjoy it.
Not at all! Our poetry workshops are organised for experts who want to remember the most beautiful Spanish poems and test their memory and knowledge, as well as those who want to start studying verse. Our aim is to spend a nice evening with other curious students while we learn important information about the essential poets of our culture and their beautiful and deep poems.
We will listen, discover, dream and think about them. Maybe some people will even stand up and recite one of their favourite poems or other written by themselves. Additionally, in this workshop we will address not only the best pieces of Spanish poetry, but also the Hispanic American one. We will speak about important writers such as García Lorca, Gloria Fuertes, the Machado Brothers, Adolfo Bécquer, Rosalía de Castro, Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz and many more!
What is this workshop about?
First of all, we will learn a lot of facts about the culture of our favourite language. Secondly, we will meet a lot of new people with the same interests. You would not believe how many new friends of different nationalities have first met in the splendid workshops of Hispania, escuela de español. And most importantly, this poetry workshop will help you a lot to improve your level of Spanish.
If I have not convinced you yet, I am going to tell you some curiosities that will impress you:
Did you know that Miguel Hernández worked as a bellboy, an office worker, a shepherd and a secretary before being a poet or that he attended his job interviews in sandals? Did you know that Pablo Neruda’s real name was Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto? What a long name! Now I understand why he was looking for a pseudonym! Did you know that García Lorca was not only a good writer but also an excellent musician and draftsman?
If you did not, don’t worry! You will learn all these curiosities and many more in our poetry workshop. Don’t think it twice and come join good poetry with Hispania, escuela de español because you will not regret it.
