Contents Introduction: poetry after translation: cultural circulation and the transferability of form in modern transatlantic poetry -- Heteronymies of Lusophone Englishness: colonial empire, fetishism, and simulacrum in Fernando Pessoa's English poems I-III -- The translatability of planetary poiesis: Vicente Huidobro's Creacionismo in Temblor de cielo/Tremblement de ciel -- Queering the poetic body: Stefan George, Federico García Lorca, and the translational poetics of the Berkeley Renaissance -- Transferring the "luminous detail": Sousândrade, Pound, and the imagist origins of Brazilian concrete poetry -- The digital vernacular: "groundation" and the temporality of translation in the postcolonial Caribbean poetics of Kamau Brathwaite -- Afterword: the location of translation: the Atlantic and the (relational) literary history of modern transnational poetics
Summary Translation - from both a theoretical and practical point of view - articulates differing but interconnected modes of circulation in the work of writers originally from different geographical areas of transatlantic encounter, such as Europe, Latin America, North America, and the Caribbean. 'After Translation' examines from a transnational perspective the various ways in which translation facilitates the circulation of modern poetry and poetics across the Atlantic
