Six English Poets in Bucharest
Parallel Texts.

 

           The year 2016 was the tenth anniversary of the MA Programme for the Translation of the Contemporary Literary Text (MTTLC). On this occasion, we innaugurated in April 2016 the Bucharest Workshops for Literary Translation. We were supported by the University of Bucharest, The Romanian Cultural Institute, The Writers' Union, and the National Museum of Romanian Literature.
           In April 2016, we started an anthology of Contemporary Romanian Poetry, which was published by CLP last week. The poems in this anthology were selected and first translated by MTTLC graduates, as part of their dissertation, and discussed with most of the teachers in the programme. They were stylized by six English poets, who came to Bucharest: Maggie Butt, Katherine Gallagher, Alwyn Marriage, Jeremy Page, Peter Phillips, and Anne Stewart.
            A book of poems written by the English poets involved (Six British Poets) was published on paper by our partner publishing house, Editura Integral, even before the workshop had finished. Contemporary Literature Press is now publishing another anthology including poems by the six English poets, as a sign of gratitude because they helped MTTLC graduates.
            The Workshop for Literary Translation will be organized again in May this year, and this time the graduates will be translating into English contemporary Romanian fiction.

            În anul 2016, Masteratul pentru Traducerea Textului Literar Contemporan (MTTLC) a împlinit zece ani de la înființare. Cu această ocazie, în aprilie 2016 am organizat prima ediție a Atelierelor de Traducere Literară București, care a fost sprijinită de Universitatea București, Institutul Cultural Român, Uniunea Scriitorilor din România și Muzeul Național al Literaturii Române.
           În aprilie 2016, CLP a demarat alcătuirea unei antologii de poezie contemporană românească. Poeții au fost aleși la recomandarea Uniunii Scriitorilor. Poemele incluse în antologie au fost selectate și traduse într–o primă etapă de masteranzii MTTLC, ca parte din disertația lor finală. Ele au fost apoi discutate la cursuri cu profesorii programului. Abia după aceea, au venit la București șase poeți englezi care le–au stilizat: Maggie Butt, Katherine Gallagher, Alwyn Marriage, Jeremy Page, Peter Phillips, și Anne Stewart.
          Un volum de poeme ale celor șase poeți stilizatori a fost publicat chiar în timpul desfășurării atelierului, de Editura Integral, partenerul pe hârtie al editurii noastre online. Ca semn de recunoștință, Contemporary Literature Press publică acum o antologie cu poeme scrise de cei șase poeți englezi care au stilizat poemele din antologia tradusă de masteranzii MTTLC.
           A doua ediție a Atelierului de Traducere Literară București se va organiza în mai 2017 și se va ocupa de traducerea prozei românești contemporane.
