Translation is an activity I keep separate from my own poetry. I translate to give English-speaking readers a sense of the original. This means subduing my own personality in an effort to preserve as much as I can of the original poet. I am unlikely to collect translations with my own poems partly because I translate with my wife, Viera. So I cannot claim that these translations are like my own poetry.
