"Wavelengths" is a companion volume to Michael Longley's previous Enitharmon chapbooks, "Cenotaph of Snow" (2003) and "The Rope-Makers" (2005), letterpress-printed at The Stonehouse Fine Press. It contains a selection of the translations which Longley describes as 'fundamental to my imaginative development - versions mainly from Latin and Greek - which reflect my preoccupations and feel to me like my own poems.' "Wavelengths" includes translations from 1962 of two Greek lyrics, versions after the love elegies of Sextus Propertius, and versions from Longley's near contemporaries - the Romanian poet Marin Sorescu, the Dutch poets Hendrik Marsman and Ida Gerhardt and as an unexpected and charming bonus, a poem originally written in French by the Welsh painter Gwen John.
