Poetry in translation

Blog, Poetry

I’ve recently finished a book of English translations of the renowned Portuguese poet and feminist activist Maria Teresa Horta: called Point of Honour, it’s published by Two Rivers Press.

During the project I was interviewed by Theo Kwek about the challenges and pleasures of translation.

Point of Honour was launched at a conference in Lisbon to celebrate Horta’s life and work – I wrote about the conference here.

I’m now beginning to translate the work of another Portuguese poet, Luís Quintais: a couple of translated poems appeared in Poetry Review a couple of years ago.
