Please join Melissa Studdard and Tiferet Journal on 1/29/14 from 7 - 7:30 PM EST for a conversation with poet, author, translator, and publisher, William O' Daly. O'Daly is a board member of Poets Against War and co-founder of Copper Canyon Press, a prestigious non-profit organization dedicated to publishing poetry.
An NEA recipient and finalist for the Quill Award in Poetry, O’Daly is the translator of numerous poetry collections by the Nobel Laureate, Pablo Neruda, as well as the author of a chapbook of poems, The Whale in the Web. Poems from both his own creative work and his translations have been adapted for dance and stage performances and photo exhibitions, and he collaborates frequently with classical and jazz musicians in performance of his work. Most recently, O'Daly has completed two manuscripts—a full-length poetry collection and a collaborative novel, with Han-ping Chin.
Of O’Daly’s translation of The Separate Rose, poet Sam Hamill states, “In his brilliant translation of The Separate Rose, William O’Daly has rendered the wide range of expression that characterizes Neruda’s Orphic tongue and its two voices, one of temporality, oppression, and sadness, the other celebrating mystery and vitality.”
