On Saturday, August 29, at 3:00 p.m., join me for Poetry in Translation: East Meets West, a zoom interview with Anna Yin. We will read and discuss poetry and translation, touching upon the myth of “lost in translation,” the art of re-creation, and the mutual exchange or benefits of the process. The audience will be invited to respond.
My appearance is part of a series of four interviews and a break-out session, featuring poets Molly Peacock [Aug 14, 8:00pm], myself, [Aug 29, 3:00pm], Alice Major [Sept 11,8:00pm] and George Elliott Clarke [Sept 25, 8:00pm] in conversation with translator Anna Yin. A fifth, summarizing session will follow [Oct 3, 3:00pm].
You can access all of these event via the same Zoom link.
