I’m delighted to learn that two of my poems from ‘Chasing the Ivy’ have appeared in French in ‘le journal des Poetes’, translated by Christine Pagtnoule from Universite de Liege.
Fascinating to see my work in another language especially when I don’t speak it. The translations do seem to carry the same rhythm as my originals and don’t seem to have lost much at all in the translation.
The book has also been reviewed by Andy Croft in the Morning Star
http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk as well as by Sally Evans in ‘Poetry Scotland’ http://www.zen39641.zen.co.uk/ps/reviews.htm
It has also received a favourable mention in ‘British Centre for Literary Translation’ and in ‘Other Poetry’
