World as it stands now...

Its almost incomprehensible. Thinking about thinking about thinking, with very little genuine merit or reasoning. The world isn't an intellectual exercise, and thinking it is will get you eaten alive.


What idiot ever thought that a white, non binary award winning Dutch written-word writer could translate the words of a black, binary female, spoken-word speaker. Has the world gone mad!!!

What difference does a persons race or sexuality make to whether they can do a job of translation efficiently? :wacko:
Translating a creative work without utterly killing it requires more than just verbatim translation.
Particularly in poetry, it requires engagement and interpretation of the underlying themes and meaning. It's as much an adaptation as a translation.
