Cerise Press: Summer 2010 Issue

The new issue of Cerise Press: A Journal of Literature, Arts & Culture is now available online, and as with all their issues, there’s a strong representation of translations. (Which is obvious from their mission: “Cerise Press, an international online journal based in the United States and France, builds cross-cultural bridges by featuring artists and writers in English and translations, with an emphasis on French and Francophone works.”)

Most (all?) of the translations are of poems, and since there’s not an easy way to link to the “Translations” section of the TOC or to the authors featured there, I’m just going to list all the authors and you can go check this out by clicking here. Cerise Press is pretty beautiful and admirable, and I feel bad for not having featured them on here before . . . Anyway, here’s the list of authors in translation:

Marie-Claire Bancquart
Pēters Brūveris
Blaise Cendrars
Pierre Chappuis
Nguyen Do
Carlos Drummond de Andrade
Hu Xudong
Philippe Jaccottet
Krzysztof Piechowicz and Taduesz Dziewanowski
Yang Xiaobin

And in addition to the translation section, there are also fiction, poetry, photography & art, essay, interview, and review sections. This is all good stuff. (And so cool that there’s a review by John Taylor of Into the Deep Street: Seven Modern French Poets 1938-2008. John Taylor is brilliant.)
