Cesar VallejoNOTHING IS LITERAL: TRANSLATION AS REMIX 

Translating poetry requires making a myriad of choices, none of which could be described as literally rewriting a text from one language into another. A better metaphor is perhaps the remix in music, in which a song is manipulated by a second artist. To illustrate this theory, examples of choices in translating the work of Peruvian poet César Vallejo will be presented and opened up for debate.
