Writing Through Summary


Writing Through: Translations and Variations by Jerome Rothenberg

Jerome Rothenberg is one of the major poets of his generation. His work in ethnopoetics, Native American and tribal poetics, Jewish identities, avant-garde poetry, and experimental translation is vital to contemporary poetry and literary studies. Writing Through couples Rothenberg's translations from a variety of non-English sources with his thought-provoking commentary. It also includes a selection of his poetry ("Otherings & Variations") in which the language of significant others forms the basis of original compositions. The result is a lively and unique anthology which illustrates how poetry, like translation, can be viewed as an act of "writing through" the words of others. Translated poets in Writing Through include Celan, Lorca, Nezval, Schwitters, Picasso and Gomringer. The book also includes Rothenberg's radical translations from oral poetries, "variations" derived from the vocabularies of translated poems, and a series of "gematria poems" employing a traditional form of Jewish numerology. In addition to Rothenberg's groundbreaking essay on "total translation," the book is interspersed with his helpful commentaries and notes, which illuminate a major aspect of his total poetics.

Writing Through Reviews


"Any book from a poet as eminent as Jerome Rothenberg is significant and welcome. This is particularly valuable in bringing together in a convenient single volume Rothenberg's scattered translations and related variations. In a broader cultural context the book will be of great significance to students and readers of ethnopoetics, 20th century avant-garde and modernist texts in translation." -- Steve McCaffery, Director, North American Centre for Interdisciplinary Poetics
"A fascinating book for anyone interested in the art of translation."--Cold Mountain Review
