Award description

Corneliu M Popescu Prize for Poetry in Translation

"Marooned on our island of language, the Popescu is one of the few regular supply ships.” Sasha Dugdale, judge

The Popescu Prize is awarded biennially by the Poetry Society for a volume of poetry translated from a European language into English.

Formerly the European Poetry Translation Prize (1983-1997) the Prize was relaunched in 2003, and renamed in memory of the young Romanian translator Corneliu M Popescu, who died in an earthquake in 1977, aged 19. Popescu translated the work of one of Romania's leading poets, Mihai Eminescu, into English. The Prize’s founding sponsor was Romanian journalist, author and democracy campaigner Ion Ratiu. It has been supported by The Ratiu Foundation since 2003. The prize of £1,500 is awarded to a translator.
