Translation & Criticism

No Text Translation and criticism are secondary activities for me although they do earn me more regular money. I began translating Slovak poetry with the help of other people notably Stefania allen who was my co-translator for "Not Waiting For Miracles", the first anthology ever of contemporary Slovak poets in English. Since then with my wife, Viera, I have translated over 100 Slovak poets with significant collections of the work of Ivan Laucik, Jan Buzassy, Mila Haugova and Milan Rufus.­
