In reviewing the Hudson Review's history of publishing poetry in translation since 1948, the editors have compiled a collection that highlights the work of major American and English poets, most of whom are prominent in their own right, who, for the last half-century, have made accessible through their translations the work of their international colleagues. Poets Translate Poets contains translations of classical Latin and Greek poetry, classical Chinese and medieval East Asian verse, canonical French, German, and Italian writers, twentieth-century Latin American poetry, and a sampling of works from Persian, South Asian, South East Asian, Scandinavian, and Eastern European poets.
