Editorial Reviews

Review

In The Translator's Diary, where truth 'never survives its translation,' Jon Pineda composes a haunting elegy. His keen attention journeys through absence and presence, fragmentation and loss in memorable, riveting language. --Arthur Sze

The Translator's Diary reminds us that one of poetry's necessary functions is translation--of literal experience and abstract emotion, the personal and shared. With beautiful formal precision, Pineda moves skillfully from couplets to sonnets to lyric sequence, carefully 'pressing syllables against the dark' in this timeless, poignant volume. --Claudia Emerson, author of Late Wife

The poems of Jon Pineda have something of the quiet grace and lyric precision of James Wright--Pineda possesses a similar ability to wrest celebration from the elgiac, and stasis from turbulence. --David Wojahn
