Contemporary poetry from around the world in English translation
October 13, 2013 4:05 PM   Subscribe

Poetry International Rotterdam has contemporary poetry in English translation from all over the world, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, including countries as different as Argentina, China, Finland, Iran and Romania, in languages as unrelated as French, Malayalam and Zulu, as well as many poems originally in the English language. The poets range in age and stature from those barely over thirty to Nobel prize winners. There are also videos and audio recordings of poets reading, as well as articles about poetry.

Well, thanks. There just went three hours. So. Easy. To. Get. Lost.

Oh, and because this website is a bit overwhelming, here are three poets I've enjoyed reading this morning: Tua Forsström, Doina Ioanid and Jacques Roubaud.

I was sure I had seen this before, but didn't have the slightest clue it was such an old post. Great site and at least one subsite used to be be managed by a featured poet.

Damn, I completely failed when searching for doubles. I probably would've posted it again since it's so old and the site has so much more content now, but I would at least mentioned the previously.
