Seminar on du Bouchet as poet and translator, Oxford, 7 November 2013

Looks fascinating; may be of interest to readers in hailing distance of Oxford: 

Oxford Modern French Research Seminar
Emma Wagstaff (University of Birmingham) will speak about 
'Poetry and Translation: the work of André du Bouchet'
André du Bouchet (1924-2001) was a poet, translator, and, along with other major poets of the post-war generation in France, a founding editor of the literary review L'Ephémère. This paper will discuss his understanding of translation, his work as a translator, and the ways in which translation is bound up with his poetic practice as a whole.
Thursday 7 November, 5.15, Maison française (Oxford)
Tea and coffee will be available from 5p.m. All welcome.
