Join a panel of speakers, writers and academics as they discuss Stephen Watts’ Bibliography of Modern Poetry on 7th April at Queen Mary University of London.
40 years in the making, Stephen Watts’ ongoing Bibliography of Modern Poetry in English Translation is a monumental body of work spanning nearly 2000 pages. As a living archive of poetry in translation, the Bibliography provides a single reference point that showcases the huge wealth and multiplicity of poetry translated into English that spans across numerous histories, cultures, and contexts.
Chaired by Nisha Ramayya, the panel of established speakers includes Stephen Watts, Hannes Schüpbach, Jo Catling, and Chris McCabe who will dig into the significance of Watts’ Bibliography and its crucial place in a full consideration of modern poetry in translation.
The panel will be followed by a light drinks reception with small bites – a chance to continue the conversation.
