Mario MurgiaMario Murgia is a poet, literary translator, and professor of English, Translation, and Comparative Literature at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
His most recent academic book, Versos escritos en agua: la influencia de El Paraíso Perdido en Byron, Keats y Shelley (Lines Writ in Water: The Influence of Paradise Lost on Byron, Keats, and Shelley, UNAM, winter 2015) attempts to explain how the figure of Milton’s Satan was adapted and sublimated in the poetry of the so-called younger Romantics. Murgia’s poetry has appeared in publications such as Caminos Inciertos (Spain, 2010), Emanations: Second Sight (USA, 2012), and The Battersea Review (USA, 2015). Murgia currently lives in Mexico City, where he has also published annotated Spanish editions of John Milton’s Maske (Comus, Axial, 2013), Areopagitica (Areopagítica, UNAM, 2009) and The Tenure of Kings and Magistrates (El título de reyes y magistrados, UNAM, 2012).
