Nevada Complex II

“From where the / uncanny calls, the home which haunts me back toward my proper landscape. Desert height which void-aches, / reminder of compromise.”

Robin Myers' The Guest

The Guest #11

By

In The Guest, poet and literary translator Robin Myers explores poetry translation as process, practice, vocation, meditation, and craft. Drawing both on her own projects-in-progress and the work of other translators, The Guest is a kind of diary, a thinking-out-loud about the pleasures, challenges, and decisions required—and invited—by bringing poems into another language. To do them justice and to make them new.

“You followed me through the needle eye of a dark, pine forest / and I emerged, as a doe–bright and spotless–on the other side.”
