Poetry. Translated from the Estonian by Miriam McIlfatrick-Ksenofontov. Katlin Kaldmaa’s ONE IS NONE, translated into English by Miriam McIlfatrick-Ksenofontov, will dazzle readers with its frank, erotic explorations of love and despair. Kaldmaa is a poet of grace and elegance, yet she is also playful and mischievous- whether writing about love or social responsibility. Having herself translated many authors (and from many different languages) into Estonian, it is no surprise that Kaldmaa’s poems are global in their scope- nor that she, at the same time, breaks down notions of nationhood, in a series of poems about lovers from different countries. Through humor and love, Kaldmaa explores and illuminates what it means to be human.
