Translation takes the spotlight in WLT’s autumn issue, which—for the first time in its ninety-five-year history—is entirely devoted to the craft that makes world literature possible: every poem, story, essay, interview, and Notebook/Outpost contribution has been translated into English, and the entirety of the book review section is likewise dedicated to translated books.
