Susanna Lang is a retired teacher who spent most of her career in the Chicago Public Schools, working with students who spoke a variety of first languages and found English to be a mystery, as she does herself. She is a poet and translator, and continues to lead poetry workshops throughout the Chicago area. Her reviews of poetry collections are available at Rhino Poetry.
Besides My Soul Has No Corners, her translations include Words in Stone (1976) and The Origin of Language (1979) by Yves Bonnefoy, as well as Baalbek by Nohad Salameh (2021). She is working now with Hélène Dorion on a translation of Mes foréts (My Forests, 2019). Her translations have appeared in such publications as Asymptote, Delos, Tupelo Quarterly, The Literary Review, Transference, Columbia Journal, Ezra, Mayday and OOMPH! Journal.
