Pressestimmen

'Another rhymed and metrical translation... is a resounding success - Peter Dale's "Aebauche d'un Serpent", a monologue by Satan in the garden of Eden. It steers past the pitfalls of rhyme with insolent ease, and when forced to add a word that is not in the original makes you wonder whether it ought not to have been... The poem's glittering intellectual sensuousness... comes through convincingly in this nonchalant, slightly Americanised version, just repellent and brittle enough.'Emma Fisher, The Spectator
