Poetry. French Studies. African Studies. Translation. READ features contemporary poetry in French and in English. Four French poets and four American poets walk into a bar.... OK so one of the French poets is Algerian and one of the American poets is half-French and another is Luxembourgeois. And it was really a cultural institute that they walked into. And spent a week translating each other's work. Trading notes. Lounging in the garden. Improvising solutions—and walking into the bar across the street. Read the results. READ, an annual anthology of inter-translation published by 1913 Press, is the fruit of the Tamaas seminars in Paris.
