"The Hudson Review has been the one great quarterly with poetic translation in the core of its identity. Two of its founding editors were poets committed to translation, and they understood that it was a task best done by the best poets. From early issues featuring translations by Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, and Robert Fitzgerald to more recent ones with work by Richard Wilbur, Rhina Espaillat, Robert Mezey, and Charles Martin, the Hudson has cultivated an international sense of the poetic art. This rich and remarkable anthology documents the journal’s indispensable contribution to the republic of letters."—Dana Gioia, poet and former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts

"This gathering of translations from the pages of the Hudson Review is a testament to a far-reaching editorial vision that for more than sixty years has brought so much of the rest of the world to American readers and writers."—Geoffrey Brock, author of Weighing Light

"A monument to the good taste, longevity, and value of the Hudson Review. . . . There are poems and plays here that will positively delight readers, inform them, and make them think about what it means to try to do justice to a work of genius in another language."—Brian M. Reed, author of Hart Crane: After His Lights
