The Poetry Translation Center has recently created a set of gorgeous, dual-language postcards featuring poems by seven of their most popular poets.
Described by W N Herbert as 'finger food for the imagination', these beautifully designed postcards act as a perfect introduction to the growing wealth of poetic riches being brought into English by the PTC.
The dual-language postcards feature extracts from 'Lamps' by Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi, 'Flute Player' by Farzaneh Khojandi, 'The Fruit-Seller's Philosophy' by Kajal Ahmad, 'Seer' by Maxamed Xaashi Dhamac 'Gaarriye', 'Your Name' by Víctor Terán, and the complete small poems 'A Change of Season' by Noshi Gillani and 'My Voice' by Partaw Naderi.
You can buy the postcards either as a set of seven individual cards featuring a poem by each of the poets, or as a set of twelve identical cards featuring the poet of your choice from the PTC website.
