About this product
- DescriptionPoetry. Literary Nonfiction. Middle Eastern Studies. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the French by Vanessa Place. <strong>Shortlisted for the 2014 PEN Award for Poetry in Translation.</strong> In January 2006, responding to pressure from the American press, the Department of Defense released three hundred and seventeen verbal trials from Guantanamo naval base, the prison camp used to house accused terrorists. From these documents comes GUANTANAMO by Frank Smith. Appropriating language from the interrogation minutes, Smith shapes these questions and answers into a literary world as faceless and recursive as the interrogations themselves, leading us away from the comfort of reason and the hope of resolution. In this bilingual edition, translated into English by Vanessa Place, GUANTANAMO unsettles the categories of law and poetry, incence and guilt, translation and interpretation.
