Two translations

...of the same Neruda poem are offered here by John MacKenzie. I could spend my days comparing translations.

Speaking of translations, The Complete Poems of Anna Akhmatova finally arrived. I ordered it ages ago. It's translated by Judith Hemschemeyer. I look forward to comparing it to Lyn Coffin's translations in Anna Akhmatova: Poems, a book I borrowed this spring from the writer who first introduced me to Akhmatova's work.
