Translating poetry is no easy task. We welcome Latvian poet Liana Langa and her Latvian-Canadian translator Margita Gailitis for a taste of their new book, Deadly Nightshade, and a conversation on the challenges and joys of translation. 

 

Liana Langa is the author of four books of poetry and one of prose and is the recipient of the Latvian Poetry Day Award and the Annual Award in Literature. Translator Margita Gailitis was awarded the prestigious Three Star Order for her work on behalf of Latvian writers.
