translation is a bitch

Posted to Utterances




I fear that my poetry would not survive translation. It might work in German, but I really don't think it would operate fully in any language other than English

I know enough Spanish to read Neruda, which I'm glad of; because all the translations I've read seem sorta off.. like a copy of copy of an image
