Sunday, March 6, 2022
12:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Description

There is nothing so beautiful as transforming a poem from a foreign language into your own language. In this class we will work on translating poems from any language into English. We will work on texts already translated, so as to have a comparison text to consult. We will talk about voice, rhythm, style, tone, and diction level; we will learn the pleasure of perusing dictionaries and thesauruses. All skill levels are welcome. If there is interest in this class, a six-week version will be offered after this class is over.

This class will be taught online using Zoom. Login instructions will be emailed on the day before the workshop. Please check spam/promotions filters or email [email protected] with questions. Registration is $124 at: www.writerscenter.org/calendar/arviopoetrytranslation/

Scholarship information for all winter/spring classes will be available in mid-November. See HVWC website for details.
