Lit_cast Slovakia #10: James Sutherland-Smith

In Lit_Cast Slovakia #10, James Sutherland-Smith talks to Julia Sherwood about his own poetry and the intuitive link he feels with the poets he translates, why he doesn’t believe in creative infidelity and why he finds translating prose more difficult than poetry and why he feels that being a man is no hindrance to translating women poets.
