No writer will ever be so closely read as by their translator. Translation is a deeply creative art of curiosity that looks to pay homage to the original by reinventing it in another language. The poet-translators assembled here have taken on a range of historical and modern poets, mostly German, from the eighteenth century Matthias Caudius, through Goethe, Heine, Trackl and Enzenberger but also Heredia and two major Surrealists Rene Char and Paul Eduard from the French. Across Frontiers, from the Camden Mews Translators, is a powerful, civilising and salutary collection. -George Szirtes
