  • Ilhan Berk's A Leaf About to Fall

    Fri, 12 Dec 2008 06:24

    The good folk at Salt tell me that George Messo's translation of Ilhan Berk's A Leaf About to Fall has been shortlisted for the Corneliu M Popescu Prize for European Poetry in Translation. This prize, awarded every two years, is "open to collections of poetry published since the preceding competition which feature poetry translated from another European language into English."
    The Corneliu M Popescu Prize for European Poetry Translation is named after Corneliu M Popescu, translator of the work of one of Romania's leading poets, Mihai Eminescu, into English. Popescu was tragically killed in the violent earthquake of 4 March 1977, aged 19. Ilhan Berk has been called a literary Midas: everything he touches turns to poems. "A Leaf About To Fall: Selected Poems" shows us, for the first time in English, the full linguistic range and imaginative power of Turkey's greatest experimental poet.
