Art or Echo - The author/translator relationship: love or hate?

From Literary Translation: Art or Echo?, 9:04 am on 1 November 2011

"Many critics, no defenders, translators have but two regrets: when we hit, no one remembers, when we miss, no one forgets." (Anonymous). Amelia talks to Jean Anderson, director of the NZ Centre for Literary Translation, poet Bill Manhire and Marco Sonzogni, senior lecturer in Italian at Victoria University, who has translated Bill Manhire's collection Lifted into Italian.
