Trials and Temptations of a Translator by Tom d’Egidio

National #TranslationMonth continues today with “Trials and Temptations of a Translator,” a talk delivered by poet and translator Tom d’Egidio for the New York Browning Society at Westbeth in New York City, on September 29th 2021, as part of a National Translation Month celebration. It’s about translating Valerio Magrelli, a contemporary Roman poet, and we hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did.

We’d love to hear what you think! Find us on twitter @TranslateMonth, share using #TranslationMonth, join our mailing list, submit a translation month event, or like our Facebook page. We hope you’ll join us and celebrate translations throughout September.

New Translations from the Abruzzese Dialect By Gil Fagiani

Abruzzo is an Italian region, east of Rome, with an Adriatic coastline and the Apennine Mountains. National parks and nature reserves cover much of its rugged interior. It also encompasses hilltop towns, dating to the medieval and Renaissance periods. The regional accents of Abruzzo include Teramano, Abruzzese Orientale Adriatico, and Abruzzese Occidentale.

Today, we’re delighted to share with you a few new translations of poems written in the Abruzzese dialect and translated by the accomplished poet and translator Gil Fagiani who specializes in translations from surviving Italian dialects.

And remember, in September and beyond: read and share your best-loved translated poems. We hope our picks will become your new favorites.
