Twit twit twit: George Szirtes

Many young poets and writers have been influenced/taught by George through his time at the University of East Anglia. Others will be more acquainted with his prize-winning book Reel and his extensive translation projects. I first came across him on Twitter, to be honest. I thoroughly enjoy his tweets about what it’s like to be a translator and a poet, but also his more profound fragments, too. They’ve lead me to read his work, which I also enjoy.






Twit Twit Twit is a regular series where I will be focusing on several poets who are on Twitter and showcasing some of my favourites from their previous tweets.
