Poetry's Geographies: A Transatlantic Anthology of Translation (Paperback)
POETRY'S GEOGRAPHIES: A TRANSATLANTIC ANTHOLOGY OF TRANSLATIONS features some of the most prominent poet-translators from both sides of the Atlantic and radically foregrounds the role of translators as bridge-builders and activists. Revealing the structures through which poetry moves and circulates, and with essays discussing the poetics and politics of translation, this anthology shapes new understandings of contemporary poetry's transnational commitments. Rather than underscoring existing national canons, the anthology forms unruly geographical lines of connection. Born amid the shuttering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it celebrates the tangible, visible community of translation.
Includes translations from Kareem James Abu-Zeid; Don Mee Choi; Sasha Dugdale; Dan Eltringham; Forrest Gander; Johannes G ransson, Katherine M. Hedeen, Meena Kandasamy, Gazal Mosadeq, Erin Moure, Zo Skoulding, Stephen Watts
