How many times can we get away with using the F-word?

Hi. I missed one piece of data in your interview. How did you usually translate euruproktos? (I don’t plan to go there, still, in a slanging match on the lawn, you never know.)

"faggot"--it needed to be shocking and funny and work, without a gloss, on stage.

That's really interesting.

The arse-holes/asses and the different ways that the text has been interpreted is interesting but so is the idea of the poet/translator and how that works (I think my equivalent is probably illustrating poems - a visual translation, maybe).

I love the analogy of the mixing deck - that's a super-interesting way to look at technique.

Either way, glancing at the right-hand sidebar, you're now the 'most read' article in the pack.

Thank you. I might have gone for “tunnel-butt” or varied that with “funnel-butt”. But, you were the translator. I’m ready for heady political analyses on the lawn with good-natured neighbors.
