Read full description of the books Voice of Ice - Voix de Glace:
Poetry. Translated from the French by the author. VOICE OF ICE is prose poetry presented in a bilingual edition. Written in French and translated by the author into the English, these poems were generated in a process yielding concurrent shifts to the original. Poet Wanda Coleman says: "In transplanting her painterly European sensibility into an American poetic context, Alta Ifland creates and redreams the hauntingly surreal emotional landscapes of dislocation, desolate distances, and Redonesque disjuncture from which she shapes these ever-shifting, mad-and-mythic excursions-in voices angry, awed, childlike, sardonic, she startles and disturbs, charms and exalts." VOICE OF ICE is published as part of the TrenchArt Parapet series, with an introduction by Gary Young and visual art by Danielle Adair.
Voice of Ice is a series of prose poems about the estranged self living outside of one’s native land and away from one’s native tongue. Eastern European poet Alta Ifland writes first in French, then translates her work into English before returning to the original French for further revisions, a process of linguistic reconciliation as much as translation. Published in a bi-lingual, French/English edition, Ifland repeatedly turns to remembered images of her unnamed homeland to animate her unfamiliar home, creating, what poet Gary Young calls, in the Introduction, “a brilliant collection of prose poems document[ing] the quest for a coherent self, an authentic identity born out of the chaos of language and history.”
