højholt in calque

One of the judges in that best translation game (see below) is Steve Dolph, editor of the excellent Philadelphia and New York-based journal Calque. Calque has its issue #5 coming out on 14 February. Among a whole load of good stuff are my own selected translations from Per Højholt's fabulous Praksis, 8: Album, tumult (1989), a preview of which has already been published online here>>. The printed pieces are accompanied by my own short introduction to Højholt and his work. Sadly, this will be the final issue of an excellent and highly acclaimed journal that is going to be sorely missed.
