As of today a few poems of mine, some translations, as well as readings in their original language, have been added to lyrikline. Happy reading and listening!

It is an honor to be included in the greatest international online body of poetry Lyrikline – Listen to the poet, which seems to be a dreamed home for a wish-be multilingualist like me.

Praise by Ton Naaijkens about gestammelte werke (2017)

Ton Naaijkens, hoogleraar Duitse letterkunde en Vertaalwetenschap, opent het recente jubileumnummer van Tijdschrift Filter met het artikel “Het vertaaljaar 2017 – De betrokken vertaalhemel”, waarin hij de vertaaloogst van 2017 bespreekt. Over gestammelte werke (Berlin: kookbooks, 2017) zegt hij:

Ik zit overduidelijk in de streng van de zonneschijn en wijs enthousiast op een publicatie van Rozalie Hirs. Bij de Duitse uitgeverij kookbooks verschenen haar Gestammelte Werke. Het gaat om een oorspronkelijke bundel van de dichteres in het Nederlands en elf andere talen, allemaal in één bundel tegelijk: “We zijn taalwezens, doen taal na, altijd in wording,” vertaal ik haar Duitse toelichting en citeer dus in één moeite door mezelf en Rozalie Hirs. “We veranderen haar, de taal, en onszelf door te spreken (en te schrijven), in het voelen-denken, in het waarnemen, in de uitwisseling. We ervaren onszelf in de wereld, in het spreken, in het woordtasten, en -proberen.” Meer dan elf vertalers wagen zich aan de teksten, onder hen Rozalie Hirs, die samen met kookbookskoningin Daniela Seel zichzelf vertaalt. Over feest gesproken, weg met alle donderwolken […] (Ton Naaijkens, Filter, Vantilt, 2018)
