Point of Contact book series focuses the late poet laureate from Argentina, Saúl Yurkievich, specifically in the inner workings of contemporary poetry and translation. The poet, Yurkievich and his translator, Cola Franzen, share an intimate dialogue about words, meanings and resonance. “The text embodies a correspondence between the writer and his translator. The letters become almost an illustration of ways of seeing –of ways of being, one should add: a poet and his translator thinking poetry,” writes Point of Contact editor, Pedro Cuperman.

Point of Contact presents a bilingual publication, The Ghetto, originally El Ghetto, by Argentine poet Tamara Kamenszain. Translated from Spanish by Seth Michelson, edited by Pedro Cuperman, the new edition is composed of the original work in Spanish alongside the newly translated English version.

The Ghetto was published by Point of Contact thanks to the support of the ‘”SUR” Translation Support Program of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship of the Argentine Republic.

“A perpetual overlapping of historical and geographic borders, a reawakening, a new definition of being in our world, -being here, there, everywhere. It is from this overlapping that The Ghetto draws its voice.”– Editor Pedro Cuperman

A prolific author, her many works include, El texto silencioso (The Quiet), Tradición y vanguardia en la poesía sudamericana (Tradition and modernity in the poetry of South America), La casa grande, Vida de living, La edad de la poesía, Tango bar, and Solos y solas (Alone and Lonely). Six of her poem books and three essay books have been translated to English, French, German, and Portuguese. Kamenszain won the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, the first prize awarded by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, and the Pablo Neruda Presidential Medal awarded by the Chilean Government.
