In this installment, we’d like to bring you the spicy taste of the poems and epigrams of the ancient poet Martial. The guest of this post is George Held, a poet and translator of great versatility who moves with ease from sonnets to epigrams to witty insights in his own poems—and always surprises his readers. Suffice to say, February at NTM is hot, dear friends!
And remember, all this month and beyond: read, write, and share your favorite translated poems.
