In this episode Idra Novey talks about her translation practice, including the differences between translating prose and poetry, how she came to Clarice Lispector, and how translation relates to the act of writing. Novey also discusses the importance of an international awareness to her poetics and how a wider view of the world relates to writing politically and compassionately.
With music and poems by Jorge Ben, Paulo Henriques Britto, Café Tacvba, Goutam Datta, Idra Novey, and Tim Maia. Plus Novey’s translations of Clarice Lispector and Manoel de Barros.
