MLA-Roth Award, 2004

For his translations of Cesare Pavese. Disaffections: Complete Poems 1930‐1950 (Port Townsend, WA: Copper Canyon, 2002) collects all of Pavese’s poems from 1930 until his death in 1950. Poet Rosanna Warren noted that these are “poems that have the density, the grit, the obdurate presentness hewn from silence for which Pavese fought so hard in Italian.”
