Dominican Republic Women’s Poetry

Upcoming on The Moe Green Poetry Discussion on BlogTalk Radio – January 13 at 6:00 PM – Join Rafael and Brett as they talk to Judith Kerman the translator of Praises & Offenses: Three Women Poets from the Dominican Republic. While the three poets presented in this bilingual collection present a rich contrast of linguistic and stylistic elements, each of them addresses shared political and cultural issues, illuminating what it means to be a woman living in the modern day Dominican Republic. Judith Kerman, who has translated a number of female poets from the Caribbean, notes that “contemporary women poets from the Dominican Republic are the most under-served group when it comes to English-language translation, in particular full-length collections or anthologies.” Thus, this exciting new anthology from BOA contains much that was previously unavailable to the English reader.
