Title: Modern Poetry in Translation
Authors: Daalder, Joost
Keywords: English language
Translation and culture
Issue Date: 1976
Publisher: Outrigger Publishers Ltd

Abstract: In this article, Daalder discusses the issue of reading Continental European literary works in translation. Daalder explains that when he reads these works in English, he reads them like an Englishman - the more so because his whole sense of history and culture is by now almost totally English - despite the fact that he is from the Netherlands originally. When it comes to poetry, Daalder tends to judge from an English framework of reference; but at the same time he realizes, when he turns to continental poets, that this attitude will not do.
