Consciousness—that historical relationship between boat and water
—César Vallejo (1928)


The translations of Paul Celan by Heather McHugh and Nikolai Popov are no longer available at The Drunken Boat. Suhrkampf, the German publisher, who owns the rights to Celan's work granted the rights to publish the translations for only a six month period. We regret the inconvenience. The translations are now available in Glottal Stop: 101 Poems from Wesleyan Press.

Please visit our Current Issue for a variety of translations of poems by Robert Desnos, Albert, Osip Mandelstam, Li Po, and many others.
