Beautiful, Rhina! Thank you for guiding us through and inviting us into the poem.

I am staying - wonderful!
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
52:32
Thank you, Jean-Dany. Yes, I love that line, too - “I am staying”…
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
57:02
Beautiful, Maria.
Janet MacFadyen

Reading a poem is like a music score… love that
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
01:00:47
Happy to see you again, Rhina!
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
01:03:20
“we … are children from the same mother” - I believe that was the line. So lovely…
Janet MacFadyen
01:05:42
Just beautiful Rhina, about poetry and play and dance. Thank you,
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
01:07:01
“you’re playing, you’re dancing, you’re making music” - “if we have lost someone irreplaceable, we turn to poetry” - “the making of a poem is a kind of revenge” [against loss, I expect is what was meant] - These are things I really needed today. Thank you.
Patricia C
01:08:58
To Reality: "You can do what you like with me, but I can create from it." - Rhina Espaillat
Mary Ann Mayer
01:09:07
Playful human ...or,homo ludens. A wonderful and fruitful concept. Poetry as play, poet as player...Not to suggest this excludes seriousness. ;) This is a wonderful talk; I feel as if I'm among friends. Your joy and passion, contagious. Refreshing approiach to the topic.
Carla Bauzá López
01:09:46
Just lovely, Jean-Dany!
Volunteer - Kate Moss (she/her)

Carla Bauzá López

What’s your process for translating bilingual poems?
Marjorie Maddox
01:14:51
Lovely
Carla Bauzá López
01:15:04
Beautiful, Rhina
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
01:15:42
“glasses, wallet, wife” - poignant how each is an “object” left by the husband. xo
Patricia C
01:17:34
"A poem must invite the reader in." Even a difficult and obscure poem, right? It has to give you a way to get inside it.
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
01:18:54
"it's dancing, not because it is having fun but because it is DOING something, getting even with death" - love this idea of creation being an action in the face of death…
Carla Bauzá López
01:20:48
Stunning
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
01:21:14
Lovely, Maria! … those night-hunting uncles & “tremulous eggs” - love how that goes with “tremulous”…
Valerie Peralta
01:21:16
yes!
Patricia C
01:23:33
I signed up because I will never miss a chance to hear Rhina Espaillat, but now I have two other poets to follow. (And yes, I will try to translate but feel very intimidated.)
Valerie Peralta
01:23:55
Beautiful!

Science affirms that our brain is wired for at least 3 languages/ and culturally monolingualism is a fairly recent phenomenon and not the rule
Emily Blackwelder (she/her)
01:28:37
You should come to the Salem State writing center!!

I teach French to adults and French doe not belong to the French , it belongs to anyone who studies the language
Rebecca Olander (she/her)
01:29:16
the translation center - where you can come with any languages you have, and we can trade, and where we can forget who owns which - LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for your beautiful work, your generosity and your inspiration. This is what it means to be American. I can’t wait to get back to translating poems.By the way, I like to “swear” in Greek using dessert names.
