Sobre este título:
Like Chasing Catullus, Balmer?s acclaimed first collection, The Word for Sorrow explores an interplay between translation and original, text and translator, past and present, giving new resonance to ancient grief. An engaging detective story in verse, the work traces the invisible lines that connect us to often surprising points in history, finding common ground in unexpected places, forging often unexpected links between past and present.
From Ovid?s Rome to the blood-soaked trenches of Gallipoli, its powerful and engaging poems give voice to the universal suffering of exile, war and grief, celebrating the enduring common humanity that binds us across countries and over centuries, whether we live at the beginning of the first, the twentieth or the twenty-first century.
Críticas: The Word for Sorrow crosses boundaries between poetry and translation as versions from Ovid?s Tristia converse with new poems that reflect on experiences behind and beyond them, such as the doomed Allied campaign at Gallipoli during World War I, focusing on weavings of life and text across history towards resonating constants of humanity ? Balmer poignantly reflects T.S. Eliot?s explanations of the ?mind of the poet?, the sensibility that connects disparities, locating and effecting meaningful wholes.? (Paschalis Nikolaou Norwich Papers )
