Julia Klatt Singer—Untranslatable

"Untranslatable" elegantly teases from the background of global human experience a persistent cross-cultural desire to describe accurately, with dignity, beauty, and subtle humor, all the varieties and vagaries of life. From “Donald Ducking” in Hungary to the Japanese take on buying books and not reading them to the Hopi word describing nature out of balance, Ms Singer ’s cleanly crafted poetry, inherently tactile, smelling of earth and riding on a current of reserved wisdom, laces together the intimate experiences of the individual with our cultural attempts to understand and communicate.

Julia Klatt Singer’s stories and poems have appeared in over five dozen journals and magazines. She is the current poet-in-residence at Grace Neighborhood Nursery School in Minneapolis.
