Translating Hanni Ossott @ Atlantean Poets

“Only radical devotion could stray so far from fidelity.”

—Chris Martin on Atlantean Poets


I’ve spent the last weeks translating Hanni Ossott for Atlantean Poets and the first few are up on the site today:

Wells on Ossott 


Hanni Ossott (1946- 31 December 2002) was a poet from Venezuela. A beautiful and tragic figure born in Caracas, she received her bachelor degree in the Universidad Central de Venezuela, where she was also a professor. She was awarded the José Antonio Ramos Sucre Prize and the Lazo Martí Prize and she worked as a translator and a critic.


Thanks for reading.
