it was amazing
bookshelves: put-down-for-a-while
Read in December, 1999

This is a fantastic exploration into the translation of one poem. It helps to know French so you can appreciate the different translations, howwever they are such different takes on the same entity that just reading thhe many translations gives you an idea of what you're missing. Brilliant.
