Clive Watkins Wins Third Prize in the 2022 John Dryden Translation Competition

The Waywiser Press is pleased to announce that Clive Watkins, one our founding editors and author of Jigsaw (2003) and Already the Flames (2014), has won third prize in the 2021 – 2022 John Dryden Translation Competition for The Occasions: Seventeen Poems translated from Eugenio Montale’s Italian text Le Occasioni. The large field spanned thirty-six languages from across the globe. The competition is sponsored by the British Comparative Literature Association and the British Centre for Literary Translation and is hosted by the University of Leeds. This is particularly gratifying given Waywiser’s recent publication of Late Montale, George Bradley’s translated selection of poems from the last decades of Montale’s life.
