CzechLit and more from the archives of Modern Poetry in Translation

Inspired by their recent collaboration on MPT’s Czech poetry issue, our friends at Modern Poetry in Translation and the Czech Literary Centre have raided their archives. This exhibition, curated by Jan Zikmund and Clare Pollard with the help of the library at Queens College, Oxford, who hold the MPT archive, paints a vivid picture of the early years of Britain’s foremost poetry translation magazine, with a particular focus on the journal’s relationship with Central and Eastern Europe, to mark StAnza 2021’s Beyond the Iron Curtain translation focus.

If you aren’t able to attend in person, keep your eyes peeled during the festival, when we’ll be sharing an article reflecting on the magazine’s beginnings, by David Constantine and Clare Pollard.

Please note that live viewing of the exhibition live depends on, and will be managed to comply with, Covid-19 regulations on social distancing in place in Fife in March 2021. Please read our position on Covid-19 safety and compliance.

In partnership with Modern Poetry in Translation and Czech Literary Centre and Queen’s College, Oxford
