I thank the following editors, where some of these translations first appeared: Fire, fragmente, Free Verse: a Journal of Contemporary Poetry and Poetics , PN Review, Poetry Review, Poetry Wales, Snow, Stand, and Vanitas. I thank also Kelvin Corcoran and Ian Davidson for publishing Twenty-Five Carmina at Gratton Street Irregulars, and Alec Newman for publishing Carmen LXIV at Knives Forks and Spoons. I also want to thank all the people who work at Hawthornden Castle, where I completed my version of ‘Poem 64’ as part of a residency there in 2009. I want to thank the authors with whom I spent my time during July of that year at breakfast and dinner, and about the grounds of Hawthornden, walking and in conversation. Special thanks go to Michael Schmidt for all his enthusiasm and encouragement over the years. I completed this manuscript as a PhD under his supervision at the University of Glasgow.
