3-2012-Cover-sm“I usually love the translation issues of Poetry magazine, but the March 2012 issue really knocked my socks off. It has some great versions of Gottfried Benn translated by Michael Hofman, an excellent feature on Marina Tsvetaeva, and Geofrrey Brock’s ‘Alteration Finds,’ an experimental translation of three authors writing in three languages. That latter is a strong contender for my favorite poem. I read and reread the issue like a favorite book and can’t recommend it enough. You can buy back copies and the content is free online.” — Matthew
