Poetic Translation

Listed in: European Studies, as EUST-24


James E. Maraniss (Section 01)


This is a workshop in translating poetry into English from another European language, preferably but not necessarily a Germanic, Slavic, or Romance language (including Latin, of course), whose aim is to produce good poems in English. Students will present first and subsequent drafts to the entire class for regular analysis, which will be fed by reference to readings in translation theory and contemporary translations from European languages. Two class meetings per week.

Limited to 12 students. Fall semester: Professor Maraniss. Spring semester: Professor Ciepiela.
