Inventory N°2 Launch Party

November 9, 2011 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Editors of Inventory, a Princeton-based journal of literary
translation, invite you to the launch of Inventory N°2.

Inventory N°2 Launch Party
Princeton University Art Museum
Wednesday, November 9, 2011
5 ̵ 6 p.m.

Come celebrate the arrival of Inventory N°2 by helping us craft a
found poem! With champagne for inspiration, guests will be asked to
jot their favorite phrases from the issue on inventory cards, to be
hung together in a composition by the evening’s end.

Inventory N°2 features works from 13 languages, including new
translations of François Villon, Ma Yan, Abdellatif Laâbi, Philippe
Jaccottet, and Friedrich Hölderlin. Issues of Inventory N°2 will be
available at the launch, as well as online and in select bookstores.

Inventory publishes thoughtful translations from any language into
English and focuses critical attention on translation theory and
practice. The journal is made possible by the Department of
Comparative Literature, the Lewis Center for the Arts, and the Program
for Translation and Intercultural Communication at Princeton. The
launch party is made possible by the GSG.
