Lost and Found in Translation: Part I

Event Closed

More Details

Contrary to the widely reported dictum “poetry is what is lost in translation”, translation is the lifeblood of modern poetry in Chinese, English, and other languages. A discussion among poets and translators Natascha Bruce, Jennifer Feeley, Tammy Ho-Lai Ming and Lucas Klein will explore the effects and challenges of poetry and translation work. Professor Haun Saussy of the University of Chicago, a translator himself, will moderate.
