Such times


“…demonstrating (as if that were needed) that poetry transposes into bodies and languages, imposing its luminous presence that no technology can diminish.” – ALEXANDRE PATEAU

“A monumental testament to our times.” – KIRBY

In 2020, the poetry translation project VERSschmuggel / reVERSible brought together six German poets, and twelve Canadian poets (six writing in English and six writing in French)— uniquely, all eighteen poets involved in the workshop [via Zoom] worked with all three languages—English, French, and German. The corresponding intimacy carried across into the digital world is strikingly palpable in the resulting volume, a remarkable document of lived possibilities.
