River in an Ocean: Essays on Translation (Paperback)
"Translation, here, is decolonial feminist work."
- from the Foreword by Fran oise Verg's.
What are the histories, constraints, and possibilities of language in relation to bodies, origins, land, colonialism, gender, war, displacement, desire, and migration?
Moving across genres, memories, belongings, and borders, these luminous essays by poets, writers, and translators invite us to consider translation as a form of ethical and political love - one that requires attentive regard of an other - and a making and unmaking of self.
