Synopsis:

In the 1980s, poet, fiction writer and dramatist Douglas Messerli began "retranslating" the original texts of late 19th century and early 20th century French, Spanish, and Russian writers into something that he felt was closer to the spirit (if not the literal word) of the original. These poems -- which he described as "after" the originals -- were often closer to the text than other translations; in other cases, Messerli was looser with the language, particularly when the poem seemed to be illuminating hidden issues of sexuality or gender. The poems alternate with Messerli's own "new" poems which were influenced by the poems he had written "after". Together, the alternating "after" and "new" poems testify to the influence of our poetic heritage through both form and subject.
