St. Olave’s students were offered the opportunity to take part in the Stephen Spender Translation Competition 2019. Students were asked to translate a poem of their choice from any language (modern or ancient) into English, and to write a commentary on this. Several students took part, including Teodor Wator in Year 9 who translated a poem from Polish, his mother tongue, into English, and Year 12 student Shrinidhi Prakash, who translated an extract from the challenging and powerful Francophone work Cahier d’un retour au pays natal by A. Cesaire into English which can be read HERE.

 We eagerly await the results!
