Today, National Translation Month is proud to present in premiere six new translations of poems by the revolutionary poet Rudra Muhammad Shahidullah translated from the Bengali by the accomplished poet and translator Mohammad Shafiqul Islam. The language of these poems is fiery and sorrowful. We fell in love with these unforgettable, romantic, and merciless lines—and we hope you will, too.
We’d love to hear from you! Find us on Twitter @TranslateMonth, tag us using #NTM2018 and #TranslateMonth2018, join our mailing list, submit a translation month event, or like our Facebook page. And celebrate translations from all over the world and close to your heart this September and beyond.
