附件:《英诗同题翻译》第十一期选题:


A Nueva York

“In order to create life, it is merely necessary to advance in a straight line towards all that we love”

I would do it for you but not here
it is a matter of seasonal change, it
is slow & unconcerned with the particulars
of now and individual wilfulness
it regards autumn as one natural
grace to arrive, the humanity of it
deflected and no cries to be heard
even the private affections turned to
larger change. And with the change
the statement of the need to merely
head directly; the arrow does for a
harder sign. Indicate the clear lake
it is precise and we anticipate it
truly and already know by heart this
clearness, and engage. In this hour’s
ripening it is chill, it unnerves
me, it is suggestibility: but
verging on a fall, it is also to be
lived through, it exhausts. No era
changes palaces, old burr of swallows
lavender that prime spring I broke
through the abyss. Master I spoke
directly an arrow through me, ice?
questions come in fits a small pony
a name dragged across the sun eel-like
to me poor thing you think to be at the
centre skin of the royal worm, egg,
door of the world, they’d trail to all
parts for peace, just that, pushed up
close into one another to swap grand
secrets. Companions, doves of one wish,
mine, go straight ahead to where I’ll
find you, the man of dry vision hails his
ornaments yellow basilica red brook red
carp. Fear is marvellous and simultaneity,
this morning Saigon the tombs swollen the mouth’s rock.
Between us we came down to the clear world
and went out together to observe the stars.

关于作者
      Denise Riley was born in Carlisle, England. Educated at Cambridge and Oxford, she is known for her ability to meld philosophy, feminism, lyric, and literary history in books of poetry and prose. She is the author of the poetry collections Marxism for Infants (1977); the volume No Fee (1979), with Wendy Mulford; Dry Air (1985); Stair Spirit (1992); Mop Georgette (1993);Selected Poems (2000); and Say Something Back (2016), which was nominated for a Forward Prize for Best Poetry Collection. Riley’s nonfiction prose includes works such as War in the Nursery: Theories of the Child and Mother(1983); 'Am I That Name?': Feminism and the Category of Women in History(1988); The Words of Selves: Identification, Solidarity, Irony (2000); andImpersonal Passion: Language as Affect (2005). Her chapbook, Time Lived, Without Its Flow (2012), is a meditation on time after the sudden death of a child. Linking poetry and prose, a sequence of 20 short poems from the chapbook, titled “A Part Song,” was published in the London Review of Booksand won a Forward Poetry Prize for Best Single Poem. Her most recent book is Say Something Back (Picador, 2016).

      Riley’s poetry is known for her rigorous, unsentimental, moving attempts to chart the multiple positions, frameworks, and frequencies constituting a poem’s “I.” In an interview with Kevin Corcoran, Riley addressed the influence of song on her poetics: “Perhaps song in general is, in the end, purely ‘for itself’. Whereas in ‘A Part Song’, its particular question was: what is the song for, in the teeth of this particular death. What can it do now? And what is its singer for, now? The only answer is: this instance of song is simply its own existence as voiced solidarity with the [not uncommon] experience of being left alive when your child isn’t. But this solidarity lies in raising that question of what it’s for, in concert with others’ questioning, rather than in anything averred inside the poem itself. … There’s a universal impulse to ask, a need to know, however unlikely it is that any answer can appear; and here’s just another instance of that usual impulse, still making its noise.”

      Riley edited the collection Poets on Writing: Britain 1970–1991 (1992). She has been A. D. White professor-at-large at Cornell University and writer-in-residence at the Tate Gallery and is currently professor of poetry and history of ideas at the University of East Anglia. She lives in London.
