Primary Instructor:

In this course we will read a broad selection of modern poetry, discuss relevant theories and practices of translation, experiment with translation, and write about poetry and translation. Readings will include poetry originally written in English as well as translated into English, in addition to essays on translation and related topics. When possible, participants will look for and read translations of English-language poetry in a language they are familiar with. This course will introduce us to the pleasure of reading poetry; it will also help participants develop writing and translation skills. Participants in the course are expected to have some basic reading knowledge of a foreign language. Course evaluations will be based on active participation, regular attendance, timely submission of writing exercises, and the completion of a final writing project developed under the guidance of the instructor.
