The Art of Translation

A Conversation with Kate Briggs and Daniel Hahn

To celebrate the launch of Kate Briggs’s This Little Art (Fitzcarraldo Editions), the author will be in conversation with writer, editor and translator Daniel Hahn.

With the reach and momentum of a novel, Kate Briggs’s essay is a genre-bending song for the practice of literary translation, offering fresh, fierce and timely thinking on reading, writing and living with the works of others. Taking her own experience of translating Roland Barthes’s lecture notes as a starting point, the author threads various stories together to give us this portrait of translation as a compelling, complex and intensely relational activity.
