Bio/Research

Dr. Machín-Lucas received his Ph.D. in Spanish literature from Ohio State University, with a dissertation on the XXth Century Pennisular Poetry since the 1950s. His research looks at some of the most difficult and profound Spanish authors of the second half of the 20th-century. These authors write about a complicated interior life and a reality beyond what most of us see. Some of these authors call themselves the poets of silence. They listen for what is beyond the words, beyond the sound. But this is not fantasy or speculation. As Dr. Machín-Lucas explains, dogs hear sounds that we human beings miss. We miss these sounds because we are imperfect not because the sounds are not there. In a similar manner, these authors look for a reality that we often cannot detect, not because it is not there but because we are not perfect.
