Millar Publishes Translation of Angolan Poet

 Lanie Millar, Assistant Professor of Spanish and Portuguese, has published a Spanish translation of the poem “Monangamba” by Angolan poet António Jacinto. The translation appears in the journal CAL: Revista de poesía (Huelva, Spain) in a special issue on Portuguese-language poetry, co-edited by former RL graduate student Rafael Núñez Rodríguez. António Jacinto (1924-1991) was one of Angola’s most important poets of the independence generation. He co-founded the Angolan Writers’ Union in 1975, and served as Minister of Culture from 1975-1978. He was awarded Angola’s National Prize for Literature in 1987.
