This year I have started trying my hand at poetry translation. It is so hard, but I love doing it. I love the challenge of translating complicated, sometimes ephemeral imagery and implied meaning into another language.
Here is my first ever online publication of my work. I translated a little collection of poems by the poet Edgardo Nunez Caballero. I found them really beautiful and a challenge to translate, but he seemed pleased with the result... and if the poet is happy, then I am.
You can have a look at them on Palabras Errantes, a collaborative online project that publishes contemporary Latin American literature in translation.
Let me know what you think!
