About the Author
Hédi Kaddour is the author of five books of poems, two novels, and a book of nonfiction. Marilyn Hacker is an award-winning poet, translator, and critic.
"Thoroughly delightful, Kaddour's poetics offer readers proof of the transcendent qualities of literature."--Library Journal--Library Journal (02/15/2010)
"Hacker has done for Hédi Kaddour what John and Bogdana Carpenter and Michael Hoffman have done respectively for the poetry of Zbigniew Herbert and Durs Grünbein, introducing to an English speaking readership a major poet of his language, brilliantly bringing his poetry into our language, creating through her translations work of undeniable achievement, force, and importance."--Lawrence Joseph, author of Into It--Lawrence Joseph
"The fluency and idiomatic precision of Hacker's translations is remarkable... We don't completely grasp Kaddour's poems in one reading. They slowly reveal their scope and intention as we return to them. And the overall result is of course a portrait of the poet himself: his keen intelligence, his sensory alertness, his humor, his irony, his verbal exuberance, and his uninsistent passion."--Alfred Corn--Alfred Corn
