Part of: Georgian Poets Tour Falmouth - Diana Anphimiadi, Jean Sprackland and Natalia Bukia-Peters
In Beginning to Speak, Georgian poet Diana Anphimiadi reveals herself to be a master of the uncanny, making our familiar world strange once more and demonstrating with sinister wit why she is considered one of her country’s outstanding contemporary poets. The poems in this selection have been translated into English by the award-winning British poet Jean Sprackland (Tilt, Sleeping Keys) together with leading Georgian translator Natalia Bukia-Peters.
Diana, Jean and Natalia are on tour across the UK in May to celebrate Beginning to Speak. At The Poly, Falmouth they will read together and talk about the translation process, exploring the weird and wonderful things that happen when you carry poems from one language to another.
