'Polyphony' is concerned with voices: the local, the foreign, the native, the acquired - and the strange hybrids that come into being when the language of home is crossed with that of abroad. All poetic language is essentially foreign - 'otherwhereish', as Robert Graves said. This issue attends to the differences of voices - within individual poems, in the interplay of poet and translator and among various translations. It is an anthology in celebration of variety, without suppressing tones, dialects and utterances it might disturb us to hear.
