An interesting presentation of a translation of Bunting into Spanish last night. The guy who translated it, Aurelio Major, is doing an anthology of poetry translated into Spanish, Olson, Duncan, Niedecker, Zukofsky, Rexroth, Oppen, with Eliot Weinberger. Wonderful but a little strange. The criterion is poets born between 1910 and 1920.

Bunting is really good in Spanish, it turns out.
