Event Date:Tuesday, May 10, 7:00 pm
Dmitry Garanin's bilingual book of poetry Icarus introduces Dmitry's English translations of his poems in Russian.
The book's title borrows the name of one of the poems. It also alludes to the notorious difficulties of translating rhymed and metered Russian poetry into foreign languages. Translations in this book closely follow the sounding of the original and give a good idea of what is happening to the English readers.
