Exchanges

Visit http://exchanges.uiowa.edu/ to read this new issue, which contains poetry, fiction, and critical nonfiction translated from the Sanskrit, Polish, German, Latin and Spanish.

The issue also features an interview with the always thought-provoking Johannes Goransson (co-editor of Action Books and Action Yes). In the interview he discusses his translations of Swedish poetry, foreignization as a kind of domestication, how translations get packaged as the foreign, closeness and distance of translators to/from their originals and more.
