University  of Iowa Professor Emeritus of Spanish and Portuguese Oscar Hahn will read from his new collection of poems, Ashes in Love. This bilingual Spanish/English collection is translated by James Hoggard. Oscar Hahn will be reading in Spanish and a translator will read  the English versions of the poems. Hahn's work has been hailed by Mario Vargas Llosa as "magnificent and truly original... the most personal I've read in the poetry of our language in a long time."  And in Ashes in Love, Hahn beautifully affirms his reputation as the premier Chilean poet of his generation.
