Wallless Space longlisted for the National Translation Award in Poetry

Posted on July 15, 2015 by Brittany Dennison

Wallless Space [Wandloser Raum] by Ernst Meister, translated by Graham Foust and Samuel Frederick, has been longlisted for the National Translation Award in Poetry by the American Literary Translations Association! 

Words without Borders said, "The translators of Wallless Space were brave to take on Meister’s dense and unusual poetry, and so far their work has been excellent.…Foust and Frederick have preserved the phonetic elements of Meister’s verse—assonance, alliteration, rhyme, anaphora—without sacrificing the poet’s distilled diction and powerfully short dimeter and trimeter lines."

Wallless Space is Meister's final collection and the last of the informal trilogy which also includes In Time's Rift (Wave Books, 2012) and Of Entirety Say the Sentence (forthcoming Wave Books, October 2015).
