Finished October 19
20 Canadian Poets Take on the World edited and introduced by Priscila Uppal
This is an interesting collection of translated works of poetry from many different languages, all translated by Canadian writers. Some of the translators had never done anything like this before. There is an introduction to each poet and that includes information on how the translation was approached.
The poetry in and of itself is interesting, but the narrative that accompanies each poet/translator is also very interesting.
This is an interesting and unique work in the field of Canadian literature.
