Poetry translation theory wanted

Hi, linguaphilians!

I'm about to write my course paper on problems of English poetry translation. The practical part of the paper will be a translation of Dylan Thomas's verse into Ukrainian, and comments on it. But I have no idea, what references should I use for the theoretical part of the work.

So the questions are:

1. Could you kindly advise some books in English, where the problem of rendering English poetry into various languages is discussed? Poetry translation theory, rendering stylistic devices etc.

2. Could you advise one or two books of critical essays about Thomas's poetry, maybe a stylistic analysis of his poetic devices and language in general? There are hundreds of books, but I'm looking for really useful ones.

Thanks!

  • Polish translation, please

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

  • some Arabic (?) phrases

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…

  • グズグズ meaning

    I am having trouble understanding what "グズグズ" means in this sentence: あのグズグズだった頃の俺の心がお前となぁなぁになる事をまだ許していないのは確かだ Could someone explain?
