Ryan Wilson (Poetry, ’08) has translations of two sonnets—one by Charles Baudelaire and the other by Lope de Vega—appearing in the new issue of Able Muse. The issue, devoted to poetry in translation, was guest-edited by Charles Martin, and includes translations by Willis Barnstone, Rachel Hadas, X.J. Kennedy, A.E. Stallings, and more.
Here’s a link to Ryan’s translation of Baudelaire’s ‘Parfum Exotique.’
