International Traduttore-Traditore Month: Poets Misread Each Others' Work

Translator as integrator or instigator? International Voices & McNally Jackson Bookstores host translators displaying the losses and gains of gravity. humor, & taboos that occur during literary migration. This event will test Tu Sian’s’s famous maxim: “Taking a poet from Russia to China is like carrying water in a sieve.” On the other hand, what would we be if we weren’t trying to rebuild Babel?

Sean Cole, producer at This American Life*, introduces and leads a discussion with Andrei about his new book, Japanese Tales of Lafcadio Hearn. Andrei edited and introduced this collection of 28 strange, ghost stories written by Hearn.

Hearn was one of the nineteenth century’s best-known writers; his name was celebrated alongside Mark Twain’s and Robert Louis Stevenson’s. As an American journalist, he headed to Japan in 1890, settled there, and became the Japanese writer Koizumi Yakumo. Among other works, he collected traditional Japanese tales, legends, and myths. He wrote his own tales for both Japanese and Western audiences. One of these stories was famously turned into the film, Kwaidan (1965), directed by Masaki Kobayashi.
