Not Drowning! Translation Seminar with Susan Wicks

This translation workshop will look at the special constraints and dilemmas attached to the translation of poetry.

This is a new poetry translation seminar of the series This Dust of Words: Translating and/as Poetry. According to poet and translator Susan Wicks, translating a poem often feels like having a very small life-raft, with a crowd of worthy passengers all clamouring to be saved. This translation workshop will look at the special constraints and dilemmas attached to the translation of poetry - in particular the poems of the French poet Valérie Rouzeau - and suggest a way of approaching them. The activities will be 'hands-on' and open to everyone (knowledge of French is welcome but not essential).
