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

  • McNally Jackson 4 Fulton Street New York, NY, 10038 United States (map)

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?

Note: this event takes place at a new location for McNally Jackson on Fulton St NYC
