Translation of poetry is rarely straightforward but is the poetry lost in the process as Robert Frost claimed? An expert panel of poets and translators with experience in this will consider the process and methods of converting poetry into new languages and the respective claims for literal translation and version. There will be an opportunity for audience comments and questions at the end. Tha an tachartas seo na phàirt de fhòcas Gàidhlig na bliadhna sa.

Presented with the support of Victoria Arts and Australia Council for the Arts
