"The Otherness Of The Translator"
Here is Yves Bonnefoy reading a second poem in French, 'La Maison Natale.'
I wasn't able to come up with a good title for this poem, and many of the French speakers in the FSG offices were reluctant to translate the title without the body of the poem also translated--further proof that this poetry in translation thing is tricky, very tricky!
So I'll present here 'La Maison Natale' as Bonnefoy read it in the original French, and if you can suggest a title in English, please mention it in the comments below. I'll give a copy of Bonnefoy's The Curved Planks to the title I like the best. (Click here to download the audio directly.)
