Translator's notes

First Night

By Menno Wigman

Menno Wigman is an intriguing poet, who combines an almost classical aesthetic with contemporary sensibilities and rock-and-roll subject matter. Dense, metrical poetry about sex and vandalism, death and suburban garden centres. As a translator I am attracted by his passion and his dedication to craft, and I enjoy the challenge of trying to reproduce both the flow and depth of his work.
