Jesse Amar (CLST Grad Student) Translation of "The Escapades" to be published in October


On October 3, Jesse Amar's translations of French poet Marie-Noëlle Agniau will appear from World Poetry Books, under the title The Escapades. Agniau is a subtle and rewarding poet, who has never before been translated into English. In The Escapades (original title Cavale), she explores questions of freedom, sex, and language, through a close engagement with the story of Ocyrhoe and other Classical (especially Ovidian) texts.
