New Literature From Europe Festival Presents: From One Language to Another
What does it mean for a writer to translate the work of other authors and how much liberty do they have with another’s words? How does interpreting compare? Featuring Elena Alexieva, who translates her work to English and is an interpreter, Yoko Tawada, whose native language is Japanese, but writes in German; Cristian Crusat, who translates from French into Spanish; and Ann Goldstein, American translator of Elena Ferrante; and Jhumpa Lahiri, who also joins us today to talk about her experience learning Italian and why she is now writing exclusively in that language. Moderated by acclaimed translator from the Italian to English, Michael F. Moore. Co-presented with ALTA and Nuyorican Poets Café.
