Delprat Translates Sepúlveda

 

Chilean poet and RL faculty Jesús Sepúlveda published six poems in the Francophone poetry review Exit, published in Montreal, Quebec, December 2019. The editor of this new issue points out that:

“finalement, vous pourrez découvrir les mots de Jesús Sepúlveda, poète chilien résidant aux États-Unis, qui, avec L’enfer, Le fascisme s’assoit à table, Moonlight, Le pont, El hacedor et Ville noire, propose des textes encore tout chauds, faisant écho aux différents remous qui secouent son pays d’origine.”

Sepúlveda was invited to collaborate on this issue by the review’s director, poet Stéphane Despatie, after they both met at the Trois-Rivières International Poetry Festival in October 2019. This festival is the most important Francophone poetry event in North America and this year the festival celebrated its 35th anniversary.

Sepúlveda’ poems in French were translated by Fabienne Delprat, nom de plume of RL French Professor Fabienne Moore.

The launch of the issue 97 of Exit, revue de poésie is scheduled for December 12th, 2019 at 5:00 pm at the bookstore Librairie Zone Libre in Montréal, Canada.
