Acouple of days ago I completed proofreading first pages of New World / New Words: Recent Writing from the Americas, A Bilingual Anthology, the first volume in a new series from the Center for the Art of Translation called the Two Lines World Library.

I’ve decided to post my introductory essay on this website, here. I’d be interested in any comments. (Bear in mind it’s a print piece, so a little longer than most of my web stuff. And I haven’t broken it up into multiple pages like I often do.)

This book anthologizes translations from Spanish texts from Latin America that were published in the journal Two Lines, along with some other texts from elsewhere.
