LINCOLN ACADEMY: Patricia Sollner: The Pleasures and Perils of Translating Russian Poetry

Monday, February 11, 2019

Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, February 11, at 12:30 when Patricia Sollner discusses “The Pleasures and Perils of Translating Russian Poetry.” Using different translations of poems, Patricia will look at the choices made and how those choices reflect the translator's understanding of the poem. She will also discuss the translations themselves and how they work on their own in English. Finally, she will talk about some theories of translation, beginning with Nabokov's. The COA provides beverages and dessert. The lectures last about an hour, including a question and answer period. Participants are welcome to stay after the program to continue their discussion. All ages welcome!
