A New Verse Translation

Book - 1967
Rate this:
Here, at last, a finely sensitive translation gives us the poem itself, not just a translator's impression, for Marie Borroff's translation successfully preserves the formulaic character of the language, reflects the diction of the original poem, and reproduces the metrical variety of the original and its cumulative momentum or 'swing.'
