Dunya Mikhail on her selection:
My translation of this poem by Louise Glück is part of my continuous work to translate contemporary American poetry into Arabic. Like the rest of Louise Glück’s poetry, “Winter Recipes from the Collective” makes us contemplate how a personal narrative informs a universal truth.
This poem was originally published in the Winter 2020 issue of The American Scholar.
