Event description

Description

In this workshop poets/translators will work on the translation of a Hindi poem by Suresh Rituparna and an Urdu poem by Azra Naqvi, the two preeminent contemporary poets writing in North Indian languages. Each poet/translator will have access to three documents: the original poem in Hindi and Urdu; a line-by-line English paraphrase; and an audio recording of the poems in Hindi and Urdu. In his brief introduction Subhash Jaireth will provide biographical, historical and cultural contexts within which the poems were written. The workshop will be followed by a special reading of translations at the Manning Clark House (24 October).
