    The 200th anniversary of Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s West-Eastern Divan forms the inspiration for A New Divan (Gingko, 2019), a multi-lingual collection of poems and translations on Goethe’s original themes from a roster of twenty-four leading poets in eleven languages, with facing English translations. With an introduction by Daniel Barenboim.
