The poet David R. Slavitt is one of the handful of great
translators we have. He is certainly the most versatile. Now he has
put himself to the beautiful labor of translating poems from the
Greek Anthology. As is the case in all of his translations, the
reader finds an absolute clarity of utterance as he moves from one
great poet's voice to another's. What he has given us is a treasury
of Greek poetry to be read again and again. Pure gold.
David R. Slavitt has also translated for Sheep Meadow Press the
work of the Brazilian poet Manuel Bandeira, about which has been
written, "There is something of the carnival in Bandeira's poetry,
a wild celebration...He is a poet of revelation, mystery and
strangely ironic humor."
