Marc Widershien

MARC WIDERSHIEN is with Alcheringa, a magazine of ethno-poetics published in Boston. We thought that the selection of his translations of Rimbaud's Les Illuminations in TCR Issue 1.14 best reveals Widershien's sense of the task of the translator, who "must strive to re-incarnate, to find a new body for the poem so that what he seems to be distorting on the literal surface, he is actually delineating." The portrait of Rimbaud is by Valentin Hugo.
