Poets Translating Poets
Posted on December 3, 2015 at 5:23 am
‘Poets Translating Poets’ is a year-long project initiated in July 2015 by the Goethe-Institut Mumbai, with an aim to create a platform for poets from South Asia and Germany to translate each other’s works.
Poetry written in Tamil and Sinhala will be translated into German by well-known German poets, while German poetry will be likewise translated into Tamil and Sinhala during the course of the project. This project promises to stimulate new literary networks and open new avenues for transcultural understanding
