The Chronicle, which is the magazine of the American Translator’s Association, has an interview of me as the 2016 winner of the Alicia Gordon Award for Word Artistry in Translation.

I talk about the fun of Baroque literature, and in closing I mention Robert Silverberg and his rules for effective writing.

Excellent interview--translation is fascinating. I don't know if I knew you won this award. I may have--maybe I even congratulated you!--but it feels like new knowledge to me now, and so I want to say it again: Congratulations! That's excellent.

Thank you! I did mention it earlier, and now in the interview I got to say some more about the process of bringing the Baroque alive.

Actually, I'm sorry that Baroque writing in any language is often overlooked these days. It's so playful and expressive. Maybe there's a way to update its sensibilities....
