In March 2013 the Directors of the Fundación Shakespeare Argentina (FSA) conducted an interview with the great Rafael Squirru (1925-2016).

We share here a fragment of the conversation about his passion for Shakespeare and Argentine Culture:

Rafael Squirru one of the most outstanding men in Argentine Culture.


He translated three works by William Shakespeare: Hamlet, The Tempest and Romeo and Juliet.

His three translations were illustrated by his friend, the Argentine surrealist painter Juan Carlos Liberti.

Hamlet was published by Dead Weight in 1976.

The Tempest was published by the Petorutti Foundation and the Biblioteca Nacional in 1997.

Romeo and Juliet has not yet been published.
