  1. Hello Claudia.

    Congratulations for your idea of keeping a blog on your father's work, a great poet indeed.

    I have become recently acquainted with his work, unfortunately almost unknown here in Spain, and I would like to start translating some of his poems.

  2. Hello Mario,
    Thank you and hello from Spain. I think it would be great to see my father's poems in a different language (Spanish). Do you self publish? Which work were you thinking of translating?

  3. Hi, Claudia.

    I have published translations in literary supplements, from English and Modern Greek. I have also a contract to publish three early works by James Joyce into a single book, a bilingual edition, in 2012. I am a poet myself.

    I thought about Quadrifariam, Lumen Gloriae & Sappunta.

    I have seen in Google Books (just the reference) "Morning & evening: prose & poems of Frank Samperi". Apart from poetry, I also love miscellanous works and the poets' prose, especially if they write about poetry.

    I haven't read yet much of your father's poetry, but what I have read is extraordinary. I want to read J. Townsend's
    "Spiritual Man, Modern Man: The Poetics of Frank Samperi", published in Jacket 36, 2008, but I wanted to wait till I read enough of Samperi's work.
