We speak with Meg Matich about Cold Moons, a poetry collection by Magnus Sigurdsson, which she translated. She is a poet and translator, and a recent recipient of the PEN/Heim Translation grant. Magnus Sigurdsson is an Icelandic poet who, in this collection, pays rare attention to the minute revelations of nature.
We also talk with Jack Zipes about The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: An Anthology of Magical Tales, which he edited, as well as Tales of Wonder: Reading Fairy Tales through Picture Postcards. He is a professor at the University of Minnesota who has written extensively about fairy tales and magic in literature.
