Welcome to the Poetry and Translation conference webpages.

And, till we come th' extemporal song to sing—
Learn'd the first hour that we see the King,
Who hath translated those translators—may
These their sweet learned labours all the way
Be as our tuning, that when hence we part,
We may fall in with them, and sing our part!

(John Donne, “Upon the Translation of the Psalms by Sir Philip Sidney, and the Countess of Pembroke, His Sister”)
