About this Event

Rabia Djelti is a poet, novelist and professor of Arabic literature. She is well-recognised as a leading literary figure in Arabic, and her narrative poem an-Nabiyya [The Prophetess] is an impressive challenge to established literary forms. Taras Press is in the midst of translating this work and invites you to have a look at an initial translated segment, to discuss the work and how its translation can be refined.

The workshop will include a brief discussion of the context of an-Nabiyya and a reading of a short passage from the work in Arabic, with our initial translation in English, and a line-by-line discussion of the translation choices. The excerpt under discussion will be distributed to participants in the workshop so that they can read in advance if desired.
