The 2003 Willis Barnstone Prize for
Poetry Translation (sponsored by
the Evansville Review, and with
Barnstone judging) has been awarded
to co-winners Marilyn Hacker and
Ralph Angel. Yours truly was one
of the five finalists, so I'm going
to pretend that was a Third Place.

Onward and upward with the arts.

Congratulations Len! I dare say, many of us would die to be one of the finalists for the Willis Barnstone Prize for Poetry Translation. I'd be interested in knowing which poem it is.

All the best, Don

Don, it was a translation
of Verlaine's sonnet
"Effet de Nuit," with the
second edition (pre-1894)
version of line 12.

Thanks for the kind words.

Congrats! Willis Barnstone is a cool dude. His book, "501 Sonnets" knocks me out.
