Centres of Cataclysm, Burmese and French women poets

centres of cataclysmI’m looking forward to taking part in a reading at Shakespeare & Co on 26 July 2016 for the Paris launch of Centres of Cataclysm, the anthology of ‘poems we cannot do without’, edited by Sasha Dugdale, David Constantine and Helen Constantine, to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Modern Poetry in Translation.

With poets: Sasha Dugdale, Timothy Ades, David Constantine, Helen Constantine, Caroline Maldonado, Nikola Madzirov, Jennie Feldman, and Stephen Romer.

My co-translation (with Pandora) of the Burmese woman poet Nge Nge (‘A man who is easily fooled and a woman who barely speaks’), appears in the anthology (and my translations of French Renaissance woman poet Louise Labé are in the latest issue of the magazine, The Great Flight).
