Poem Podcast from the Poetry Translation Centre

Last week we received the sad news that the PTC's founder and Artistic Director, Sarah Maguire, had died. Over the years she produced many wonderful translations for the PTC.

This week to celebrate her work we are releasing this extended podcast featuring 11 poems by Partaw Naderi from Afghanistan, that Sarah translated with her good friend and Yama Yari. 

Each poem is read first in English translation by Sarah and then in Dari by Partaw himself.

A fuller reflection of Sarah's life and work will follow soon. If you have memories you would like to share with us please write to erica@poetrytranslation.org.
