The Poetics of Translation: Celebrating the launch of Gregorio Kohon’s Odetta in Babylon and the Canada Express
About this event
The hypnotic voice of Odetta in Babylon and the Canada Express is a beat voice, vividly rendered in English by Kohon and Griffiths’ bewitching recreation. It has the power to transport you to the 1960s, to Buenos Aires, to those first overpowering experiences of sexual love. It invites you to step onto the train, and to let go. Enjoy the journey, wherever it takes you.
Parthian Books is thrilled to launch the English-language translation of Gregorio Kohon’s lyrical narrative poem, first published in Buenos Aires in 1968. Join us for an evening of discussion and readings, with a panel of expert speakers, to celebrate this fantastic work of literature.
