ben arrivati ad Hameln

Jonathan Galassi has a post on the FSG poetry blog about poetry in translation.

Galassi has just finished translating the poems of Leopardi, a project which has taken 10 years (in part, no doubt, because he is also President of Farrar, Straus & Giroux); the book is due for publication in the fall.

The blog tells us Mr Galassi will be adding occasional thoughts on poetry during the course of National Poetry Month. When we note that the date of the initial post was 1 April, and that the 11th is upon us, we can't help feeling that we are in the presence of the highly effective habits we should very much like to acquire.
