Réda and Grünbein in Poetry, January 2007

The January 2007 issue of Poetry includes two of my translations: "Return from the Ball," a poem by Jacques Réda, and "The Poem and its Secret," an essay by Durs Grünbein. I recommend them both, of course, but I am especially fascinated by Grünbein's essay and recommend it highly.

That's good to hear. Now you have two cover stories at the same time :o)

"Cover stories"?

Both Réda's and Grünbein's names are on the cover of this issue, along with only one other name. So you are involved in two of the three "cover stories." That's what I meant.

Such a European cover this month! (With Zbigniew Herbert as the third featured name.)
