Fafnir’s Heart: World Poetry in Translation will be launched this evening at Kitab Khana. Edited by Priya Sarukkai Chabria and published by Bombaykala Books, the anthology has the work of poets and translators from 12 countries writing in 14 languages: from translations of Hijab Ismail from the Urdu and Mani Rao’s Sanskrit to English of Kalidasa to Rilke’s rare late French verses translated by David Need to Ophelia Zepeda translating herself from the Tohono O’odham language. The poetry spans modern Japanese haiku, avant writing from the German and Polish, mystical songs from the Kashmiri and classical Tamil, translations from Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Persian, Spanish, Sindhi and more.

“Fafnir The Dragon lives in Norse mythology,” Priya explains in the introduction. “Like all dragons he breathes fire and guards hoarded treasure; he is greedy. But he holds a secret. A taste of his large heart grants the eater an understanding of the languages of birds, beasts and nature, even the hidden thoughts of people.”

The event includes readings by Arjun Chaudhuri, Hemant Divate, Menka Shivdasani, Mustansir Dalvi, Ranjit Hoskote and Sampurna Chattarji.
