Babel 2017 – The Afterlife
Translation moves across literatures, literatures move across worlds. This year, Babel crosses over the ultimate boundary and welcomes writers who – from the world over and in different languages, with irony or with rage, cautious or in love – gave voice to the silent entourage, shed light on the shadows. Babel goes Afterlife.
With Yu Hua and Xiaolu Guo, Eric Chevillard, Marie NDiaye, Susana Moreira Marques, John Freeman and Franco Buffoni, Abdelfattah Kilito and Luisa Orelli, and Ugo Cornia, Daniele Benati and Viola Di Grado for Moby Dick, Rete Due.
