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.

Still Life with Loops

Eli Tolaretxipi

Still Life with Loops

Born in San Sebastian, and still living and working there, the Basque poet Eli Tolaretxipi has published two collections of poetry in Spanish Amor muerto naturaleza muerta (Past Love Still Life) and Los lazos del numero (The Loops of the Figure). Although translated into French and Italian, she has had to wait until the publication of this volume for her poetry to appear in English, in a fine translation by Philip Jenkins; Robert Crawford's excellent introduction to this volume helps to set her work in context.
