John Taylor interview

John Taylor interview

Literary translator, poet, and essayist John Taylor has translated a fascinating range of 20th-century Swiss-French and French-French poets into English, including Pierre Voélin (included in Trafika Europe 12), Philippe Jaccottet, José-Flore Tappy, Pierre Chappuis, Jacques Dupin, Pierre-Albert Jourdan, George Perros, and Louis Calaferte. In this dense and brilliant talk, he discusses poets he's translated, with examples, and explores their literary, philosophical, cultural and European context - a terrific conversation. This interview was possible with generous support from Pro Helvetia.
