Baltic poetry RSS
We are ushering in 2019 with some great translation news. Latvian poet Krišjānis Zeļģis, who was part of the Parthian Baltic series with his memorable collection Beasts, has been translated to Catalan. Bèsties is now available from Curbet Edicions.
Sunday evening at The Wheatsheaf in Fitzrovia (London) the Parthian Baltic series was launched. It was a special night, filled with incredible poets from the Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, including Madara Gruntmane, Eduards Aivers, Eeva Park, and many others.
‘I avoided becoming a writer for as long as I could’ Interview with Eeva Park, author of The Rules of Bird Hunting, part of the Parthian Baltic Series
Eeva Park is one of the authors featured in the new Parthian Baltic Series. Whilst she began her writing career as a poet, she is also well-known for her short-stories, novels and plays. The Rules of Bird Hunting is a lively, strongly autobiographical collection of poems, exploring changing values over the course of a lifetime, and features the author’s best work from the last three decades. Eeva Park tells us more about her writing, her influences and gives us some insight into the process of both translating and being translated.
