CRWT 224 Poetic Translations & Adaptations

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Translation and adaptation have been vital to the shaping and reinventing of English and American poetry. They have introduced new forms and conventions, and very often have refreshed a poet’s language just as it was becoming staid and mannered. Poets translate and adapt our love for the original, but also to reassess their own work, calibrate their language, extend their range, and stock up the imagistic arsenal. After all, different languages, different cultures, and different historical periods yield different modes of perception, different sensibilities. Often enough, poets will publish breakthrough collections after engaging with translation.
