“Always in Translation” is a poetry reading and talk with Jake Levine — an American translator, poet, and scholar who has been living and working in Korea since 2013. He works closely with Korea’s leading poets and has translated their work in numerous collections, including Kim Kyung Ju’s in Bred from the Eyes of a Wolf (2018) and Kim Yideum’s in Hysteria (2019). The reading will showcase these poets’ work and a discussion will offer insights into the process and politics of translating Korean poetry today.
