Paul Celan

Eye of the Times

There have been many translations of Celan, each reflecting a different angle of approach to what is generally agreed to be his very complex poetry. Celan was known to have a special interest in language, in the way words work and the way in which they can be misused and can misrepresent – this is why he so often revised his poetry. Jean Boase-Beier’s particular approach to translating Celan focuses on his use of words, and her illuminating introduction and her notes contextualizing each of the poems in this chapbook are invaluable in helping the reader to their own interpretation.

In My Garden of Mutants

Volha Hapeyeva

In My Garden of Mutants

This bilingual chapbook offers an introduction to the work of the prize-winning Belarusian poet Volha Hapeyeva, in Annie Rutherford’s beautifully modulated translations.

The themes which Volha Hapeyeva deals with are not the easiest: war, death, gender. But she doesn’t make it hard for the reader to follow her lyrical confrontation with these themes. Hapeyeva’s language gains its power from its almost laconic simplicity. Her poetry evokes melody; combativeness exudes from all the text pores of the poems.

Jury's statement on selecting Hapeyeva as the Graz City Writer, 2019/20

You can see a specially-commissioned filmpoem of 'And She Dreamt About the Word' (with thanks to Annie Rutherford and Volha Hapeyeva).
