Master Class in Translation with Angela Rodel

Winner of the 2023 International Booker Prize for Her Translation of Georgi Gospodinov’s Time Shelter

 

Please join the Harriman Institute for a deep dive into the poetry and prose of Georgi Gospodinov. Starting with a look at his poetics and an attempt to translate his “I’m Dying a la Pasternak” (an ironic reference to the Russian writer’s famous poem “Winter Night”), we will then turn to a passage from his novel Physics of Sorrow, that uses much of the same word and sound play in prose.

KNOWLEDGE OF BULGARIAN OR OTHER SLAVIC LANGUAGE NOT REQUIRED.

12:00 Lunch

1-3:00 Master Class

The master class will be followed at 3:30 by a reading from Rodel’s translations and conversation with Harriman Director Valentina Izmirlieva.
