DISCUSSION: UNDERSTANDING THE ART OF TRANSLATING POETRY
Paul Doru Mugur, Adam J. Sorkin and Claudia Serea will discuss their process of collaboration for the recent volume titled The Vanishing Point That Whistles: An Anthology of Contemporary Romanian Poetry (Talisman House: Greenfield, 2011). The Vanishing Point is a superb collection that includes both emerging and well-established voices in contemporary Romanian poetry. At this Writing Center program, the translators will share work from the anthology, highlight the difficulties and the joys involved in translating poetry, and discuss the new trends in contemporary Romanian poetry written after the regime change in 1989 and after the country has joined the E.U.
