First of many

We held the first session of our workshop last night, with a pretty dynamic discussion ranging over all sorts of ideas. I kept thinking to myself, I need to slow this down so we can spend more time with any one of our discussion points! But we will...

In the meantime, I'd like to provide a couple of translation-related reads:

Translationista, written by Susan Bernofsky, translator of Franz Kafka and Robert Walser, is a very up-to-date and fascinating read about many current translation issues (pay of translators, etc.) She also sometimes lists translation events in NYC.

Pierre Joris' blog is another terrific read; he and Nicole Peyrafitte will be visiting the class March 20 to talk about North African influences on European poetry, Trobadors and Trobairitz, and other translation projects they are working on (and perhaps even a little music)...

OK, more soon.
