A Translation of Anne Portugal's la formule flirt
Marisa A. Gearin
Prof. Faith Beane, Faculty Mentor

I have chosen to translate a book of poetry by Anne Portugal entitled la formule flirt . Anne Portugal has written over a dozen books of poetry, and takes inspiration both from other poets such as Jacques Roubaud and the Language group, as well as more recent media such as video games. Her poetry is experimental and makes use of nonstandard grammar as well as wordplay in multiple languages, making it a particular challenge to translate. In my presentation I will walk through my methods of translation for several of the poems, explaining how I solved some of the particularly thorny issues.
