Hannah Farris

Translator of "Chance, Freedom"

February 6, 2023

Hannah is a junior pursuing a Bachelor's degree in French with a minor in Religious Studies. She plans to work as a professional translator after graduation. This work was her first official translation and opened the door to her future translation opportunities.

If Chance is a "straw man" and Freedom a distant ideal, then why write poetry in the first place? Because not all straw men are hollow and because not all ideals should fade into the distance. In his third book of French poetry translated into English, Dotoli continues to shine as a beacon of hope and optimism in a world that often forgets how its prosaic whimpers may still resonate with a lyrical bang.
