This talk will focus on the craft of translation stemming from Sandra’s experiences translating Baudelaire from French to English. The talk suggests that sometimes radical and unorthodox translations, paradoxically, can create more authentic and exciting insights into the original poems.

Her poems have been included in the Best American Poetry 2015 and 2014 and have appeared in many literary journals, including Poetry, the American Poetry Review, the Chicago ReviewGrantaBoston Review, PloughsharesFenceCourt Green, and Lana Turner.
