SCOTT ABBBOTT'S TRANSLATION OF HANDKE'S "TO DURATION"

Follow summapolitico on TwitterGabriel Josipovici’s discussion of his “book of the year” (today’s Times Literary Supplement) he wrote the following:
Peter Handke’s long poem Gedicht an die Dauer came out in 1986 and has
only just been brought out in English, as To Duration, in a fine
translation by Scott Abbott, from the small press, Cannon Magazine.
That the same person could write Offending the Audience, Essay on
Tiredness, Repetition and this poem is quite remarkable. Handke is one
of the shining literary lights of our time and it says a great deal
about the insularity of our culture that this profound and beautiful
poem has had to wait almost thirty years to appear in English.
