The Autobiography of Translation - Three Collections by Contemporary Greek Women Poets: An Introduction

Van Dyck, Karen

Introduction to "The Rehearsal of Misunderstanding : Three Collections By Contemporary Greek Women Poets." My title, The Rehearsal of Misunderstanding, refers to the proliferation of double entendres, obscure references, and indirect constructions in Rhea Galanaki's The Cake, Jenny Mastoraki's Tales of the Deep, and Maria Laina's Hers, as well as more generally to the challenges facing writers in Greece under and after the dictatorship (1967-1974). My title, however, also refers to the rehearsal of misunderstanding prompted by my translation of this poetry.
