a: translation ~
b: sculpture


"Balina worked with Professor of English Emeritus James McGowan on the translations of poems by German
poet Wolfgang Borchert. "Translation is like a sculpture, basically shaping up the material like it was clay, and
then refining it," agrees McGowan, who is known for his translations of the French poet Charles Baudelaire.
"Just because the words are similar from one language to another, it does not mean the meaning is similar." "
