New Poem on Front

The Translators. About translating. The verses in italics are paraphrases of an opinion argued by a fine translator and theorist of translation. It's as well to be humble but I won't quite own to being a faux monnayeur.

Another hectic week ahead. Teaching till 6.30, then reading tonight in Norwich, launch of Shuck, Hick, Tiffey. Tomorrow the MA group here. Wednesday is fine. Thursday Bath, Friday home. Saturday London. More later.

Uncle Gabriel on his way to Stamford Bridge where will be reporting live for Radio Cluj.
Bill the Bookie's latest returns to €1: Chelsea 1.10, Draw 5.50, Cluj 9.90
Can the Vamps upset the Blues? Tipster Herbert Prohaska tips Chelsea, which means the Rumanians are definitely in with a chance! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Cluj.
Rovers in the pits and going down. Aaargh!

Close all the garlic shops!

Hide away the stakes!

Let the tombs of the Fulham Road be opened.

Where is Christopher Lee when you need him?

Poet in Residence said...

Christopher? Didn't he finish up on Merseyside, or was that their Sammy? Perhaps he's gone into management? I can't really imagine him ending up as a TV pundit. But of course I've been wrong before.

Good luck for tonight George. Fingers crossed, as they say in Cluj.

It's all happening folks. One glance at today's Football Pink reveals all:

Clueless Chelsea scrape home against Cluj

Norwich sign Shuck, Hick, Tiffey
