Some Aspects of the Translation of Poetry
Osers, Ewald
Meta, 23, 1, 7-19, Mar 78
The true criterion of poetry is the internal tension or charge of the language. Alternative expression of words, figurative language or turns of phrases that will reproduce the emotional charge is the critical question for the translator. Examples of lines of poetry in the original and in translation are discussed. (AMH)
