Words translated by Paul Cunningham

University of Georgia English Ph.D. student Paul Cunningham has a full-length book of translation forthcoming from OOMPH Press.  Words, by Swedish poet Helena Österlund and translated from Swedish by Cunningham, is forthcoming in October.

According to Cunningham, “In “Words,” the future often feels reminiscent of the past. At first glance, there’s a deceivingly minimalistic sparseness to the poems. Visibly, the language might appear simple, but the poems are quite complex. Like John Cage’s own meticulously arranged patterns, blank measures, and rests, “Words” is its own musical nervous system of intricacies.

Words is available for preorder on the OOMPH Press website.
