“…I always imagined going to space from my earliest memories”: Abigail Harrison (Astronaut Abby) interviewed by Neil Langdon Inglis

Abigail Harrison akaAstronaut Abby

NLI: Did you have a watershed experience in your early life, after which it became crystal-clear to you that your future lay in space?

AH: I didn’t have a specific experience. For me I always imagined going to space from my earliest memories. I just knew this was what I wanted to do.

Translation is “a strenuous but efficient way of teaching yourself to write”: Chana Bloch

Chana Bloch

Interlitq: What drew you to translation?

As a young writer in a workshop with Robert Lowell, I submitted along with my own poems some translations of Abraham Sutzkever, the great Yiddish poet. Lowell told me, “You can learn to write from your own translations.” That proved to be the most helpful advice I have ever received about writing. A translator needs to know at least one language very well: her own. You might say that translation is a form of apprenticeship—not to a master craftsman, but to the genius of the language itself. When you translate you are constantly choosing among alternatives in order to convey meaning, register, image, mood, music; each time you choose, you are exercising muscles that you need in shaping your own work—a strenuous but efficient way of teaching yourself to write.

“Also, I think that not only does talent get resented, but that the worst resenters are the untalented”: Fiona Sampson

Interlitq: As Editor of Poetry Review, you were preceded by Muriel Spark. How do you consider Muriel Spark as writer and woman?

FS: I think she was well-named! Sparky in both the intellectual sense and in the sense of having evident personal charisma and courage. For me she’s a real role model and, again, a writer with a whole body of work, much of which has become canonical (as in my own passing reference to The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, just for example). I think that Spark was very badly treated by the Poetry Society and by other male amateur poetasters she tangled with… and that their impulses, their arrogance, their assumptions that a woman writer is always “a woman of no importance” – that the phrase is a tautology – are still absolutely familiar today. Even though we no longer wear Fifties fashion, little else has changed. Also, I think that not only does talent get resented, but that the worst resenters are the untalented. A good male (or female) writer doesn’t need to waste time trying to undermine some passing woman – he has his (she has her) own work to get on with…
