Christopher Middleton uses translation as part of his own poetic project. Here he offers poems from German, French, Swedish, Spanish, Arabic and Turkish, ranging as far back in time as the medieval age. His approach to each poet is appropriate: the general rule is to be true to those things that make a poem unique.
