“Gozo Yoshimasu is, simply put, one of a handful of the most important and influential living poets whose work has taken poetry into the beyond.” — Forrest Gander
The Center for the Art of Translation welcomed Japanese poet and performance artist Yoshimasu Gozo and poet Forrest Gander to San Francisco for a performance and discussion of Gozo’s work, including his poetry collection Alice Iris Red Horse (New Directions). Edited by Gander, Alice Iris Red Horse gathers translations of Gozo’s major works that span his entire career. Also included are illuminating interviews and reproductions of Gozo’s artwork and performances.
Alice Iris Red Horse, edited by Forrest Gander with introduction and notes by Derek Gromadski, features translations from the Japanese by Sawako Nakayasu, Hiroaki Sato, Eric Selland, Jeffrey Angles, Richard Arno, Derek Gromadzki, Forrest Gander, Sayuri Okamoto, Auston Stewart, and Kyoko Yoshida.
