Event description

Description

How does a professional literary translator tackle the many little problems that can turn up in a selection of contemporary Italian short stories: a poem by Michelangelo, an amnio report, a narrator whose age is unclear, a first line that needs to draw readers in or a last line that needs to stick the landing? Johanna Bishop offers a behind-the-scenes look at translating the first two issues of TheFLR - The Florentine Literary Review.
