New European Poets
(Graywolf Press, 2008)

Marilyn Hacker was the editor of the French and Francophone section and also served as a translator for this landmark anthology, which is compiled from works by poets whose writing was first published after 1970—a new generation of poets who have come of age since Paul Celan, Anna Akhmatova, Federico García Lorca, Eugenio Montale, and Czeslaw Milosz. The 270 selected poets represent every country in Europe, and many of them are published here for the first time in English. The poetry is fiercely intelligent, often irreverent, and engaged with history and politics. The range of styles is exhilarating. Poetry translated from more than thirty languages is represented, including French, German, Spanish, and Italian, and more regional languages such as Basque, Irish Gaelic, and Sámi. Marilyn Hacker is a professor of French at City College and the Graduate Center.
