Translating Poetry [Sharon Bryan]
All Levels | Writing poetry is itself a kind of translation—your observations are transformed into words and music. Nothing illuminates that process like reading multiple English translations of the same poem. Every difference between them makes the translator’s hand visible: What choices did they make? And how is the poem changed? Students will try their hand at translation using The Poem Itself, a book that provides all the raw materials to assemble an English version of a poem written in another language, and handouts provided by the instructor. No knowledge of another language required.
