The lecture Lost in Translation, Found in Translations is organized by Student Club Central’s Italian American Organization and the Italian Resource Center.
Maria Esposito Frank will present a selection of 20th and 21st-century short poems by Umberto Saba, Eugenio Montale, Margherita Guidacci, and Maria Luisa Spaziani. Each original Italian text will be accompanied by various English translations, that will be individually discussed in order to examine obstacles and challenges of linguistic, formal and cultural nature – each translator encountered in his/her rendition of the poems.
