RESIST XENOPHOBIA (THRU TRANSLATION)

CHLORIS IN MORE VOICES
CHLORIS IN MORE VOICES

My third blog post for the Poetry Foundation’s Harriet is a continuation of the second: it thinks through Amelia Rosselli’s imagination of the nymph Chloris, and the ramifications of treating Chloris, represented by both Botticelli and Rosselli in choked polyphony, as a figure of translation. “Translating, and retranslating, Rosselli’s late distressed pastoral over the years […]

TRANSLATION AS (RE)PERFORMANCE
TRANSLATION AS (RE)PERFORMANCE

My second post for Harriet: The Blog thinks through what it would mean to consider the performance of an original and translated text as a fundamental part of the act of translation. “Performance plunges us concretely into translation’s uncommon temporality as we strive to body forth the the cognitive and musical pulse of a text […]

ANOTHER LITERARY HISTORY
ANOTHER LITERARY HISTORY

“She was also reading writings of the Black Power movement; she was entirely tuned in to what was happening in the US.

OF FISHINESS, FLESH, & THE RADICAL UNDEAD
OF FISHINESS, FLESH, & THE RADICAL UNDEAD

That’s the name of my contribution to Boston Review’s forum on class and diction in contemporary poetry; it’s necessarily telegraphic, incomplete, and constrained in its terms, being pointed toward the necessity of response to Daniel Tiffany’s provocative “Cheap Signaling.” To sampling that debris. “I say [avec Glissant, Rosselli, & various others] that nothing is true […]
