Length: 154 pages1 hour


‘The Constellation’ is the special ‘Poetry International Festival’ issue of Modern Poetry in Translation. The magazine focusses on the powerful and moving exchange of poems and letters between Bertolt Brecht and his lover and collaborator Margarete Steffin as they went through exile, war and loss. These new translations are by acclaimed translator and poet David Constantine. The issue also features new poems by Christine Marendon and Nikola Madzirov who are both appearing at the Poetry International Festival at London’s Southbank Centre, and responses to Rilke’s poetry by Patrick McGuiness, Sujata Bhatt and Durs Grünbein. Raw new poems from Iran, poetry from China, Somalia and Turkey and translations by John Berger of his son Yves Berger’s French poetry are just a few of the many highlights.
