BOOKS: Celine Zins reading at Shakespeare & Co.
French poet Celine Zins, will be reading in French from her collection of poetry Adamah and her American translator Peter Schulman will be reading his English version. Celine and Peter will also talk about the caveats and collaborative techniques of translation. This is a bilingual event. Celine Zins is a widely published poet/writer in France and is a translator for writers such as Philip Roth, Joyce Carol Oates, Carlos Fuentes, Ernest Hemingway, and others. Adamah was originally published by Gallimard in French and has just been released in a bilingual edition by Gival Press. Celine has been described by her American translator as ‘a brilliant enigmatic poet of the 80s who mysteriously dropped out of the poetry world after four astonishing books’. After a thirty-year hiatus, she just published a new work in French, Eclipse.
