and there’s more

Paisley Rekdal sends an open letter to Christian Ward regarding one of her poems.

Ward has had translations published under his own name from the Swedish, French, Croatian, Spanish and German in various magazines over the last few years. These are now being called into question by Janice D Soderling, who states that he purloined her translation of a Swedish poem (in which she had mistranslated a line; the stolen version also had that same mistranslation). Her evidence is listed at the poetry forum Eratosphere here.
