32. Dead Poets Society 1: Gabriela Mistral

Mererid Hopwood and Peter Florence.

Mererid Hopwood, the great Welsh language poet and Professor of Languages, the first woman to win both the Bardic Chair and the Crown at the National Eisteddfod, introduces the life and work of the Chilean poet, who in 1945 became the first Hispano-American winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Strong and intensely human, Mistral’s poetic women confront impossible situations to which no sane response exists.
