In the writing of poetry and translations, everything and nothing is foreign; everything and nothing is new. This hybrid collection takes us across the globe, showcasing an impressive range of poetry and translated literature, examining places and sensations that are often as familiar as they are strange.
In Venice, a woman realises that she is merely “The Photographer’s Girlfriend,” while in Chile, young love is quietly eroded by social and economic realities. Meanwhile, a Ugandan poet explores her family heritage, and the wisdom of Hermann Hesse is passed on in a new translation.
In turn surreal, funny, and tender, these contributions offer a diverse collection of writing from members of the UEA 2023 MA Literary Translation and Poetry cohorts.
