Jeannette Rogers' Translations Featured in "Grains of Gold: An Anthology of Occitan Literature"

Jeannette Rogers reports that A dozen of her translations will appear in Grains of Gold: An Anthology of Occitan Literature (part of Francis Boutle Publishers’ Lesser Used Languages of Europe series).

The anthology, which features Occitan writing from the 11th century to the present, has already received PEN England’s translation award. 

A Romance language spoken in southern and south-central France, the Val d’Aran in northeastern Spain, and a small part of northwestern Italy, Occitan is closely associated with the troubadours, composers of courtly lyric poetry of the 12
th and 13th century.
