Modern Poetry in Translation Series 3 Number 12 : Freed Speech Paperback / softback
Edited by David J. Constantine, Helen Constantine
Part of the Modern Poetry in Translation, Third Series series
2009 sees the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
One of those rights is freedom of speech. In this issue of "Modern Poetry in Translation", we celebrate speech that has been freed.
Poetry and translation, working together, have often been the means and the best expression of that liberation.
We feature examples from past and present, from all over the world, from all manner of circumstances, of people being enabled to speak and of their voices being heard.
We also explore the repression and harming of those voices, but chiefly we show the triumph of the will to speak, the freeing, the recovery and the enjoyment of tongues.
