The man in a green uniform with red tabs looked once, twice, three times from her passport picture to her and blew expressively, in boredom or exhaustion.

For Tom Disch, who knows why. Poetry is power, M once said to Akhmatova in Voronezh, and she bowed her head on its slender neck. The man in a green uniform with red tabs looked once, twice, three times from her passport picture to her and blew expressively, in boredom or exhaustion.

If I were a translator, I’d try. He laughed in delight at this, and she . He laughed in delight at this, and she thought she hadn’t seen him laugh before; still his eyes went on taking her in, her and everything. At the library she’d come upon the old Mermaid series of Elizabethan poets, beautiful books that just fit into her new Mark Cross bag; and she started reading Marlowe and Massinger and Webster and counting the beats on her fingers, da-dum da-dum da-dum da-dum da-dum

Poetry. Winner of the 2007 Green Rose Prize. "In THE TRANSLATOR'S DIARY, where truth 'never survives its translation,' Jon Pineda composes a haunting elegy. His keen attention journeys through absence and presence, fragmentation and loss in memorable, riveting language"--Arthur Sze. "THE TRANSLATOR'S DIARY reminds us that one of poetry's necessary functions is translation--of literal experience and abstract emotion, the personal and shared. With beautiful formal precision, Pineda moves skillfully from couplets to sonnets to lyric sequence, carefully 'pressing syllables against the dark' in this timeless, poignant volume"--Claudia Emerson.
