Poetry in Translation

from Europe and beyond, including our Visible Poets, Arc Translations, Arc Classic Translations, New Voices From Europe and Beyond and Anthologies in Translation series. At Arc Publications, we believe that the importance of translated poetry cannot be overestimated. Reading the poetry of other cultures, countries and backgrounds helps us to understand other points of view. It also gives us an insight into other poetic traditions and allows us to hear unfamiliar voices. Translations of poetry must be poetic translations if they are to help their readers gain understanding, insight, and pleasure from new and exciting work, so we are careful to accept only those translations we consider outstanding.

Mila Haugová

"In a time when western culture generates most of its symbols through the distortions of television, Mila Haugová retains the remarkable ability to sing of the symbolic heights and depths of experience.
