My Translations

Here I’ll post a few of my translations as I continue working. These are always works in progress: in some ways translating a poem is no different from writing a poem, with endless choices about word order, sound, emphasis, and syntax. I’ve only been translating a few months, and what I’m doing now is so different from when I started that I can barely imagine what my work will be a year or more from now! I’ll try to keep updating the translations as I change them, to show some of the process of this art.
