Marvellously thoughtful and well-informed review of my (fairly) recent translations of the poems of Peter Huchel. Also recent winner of the Society of Authors’ Schlegel-Tieck Prize for Translation 2020.
Many thanks to Rebecca DeWald and to Reading in Translation.

Good to see this. I am reading your Huchel translations now and enjoying them very much. I have one question: what do the letters KJV signify? They appear in parentheses throughout the notes.
Many thanks for commenting Frank. And a good question = Kings James Version of the Bible.
Thanks for the quick reply, Martyn. I should have thought of that, because I’m accustomed to seeing SRV for the Standard Revised Version.
