How To Read
Fractured is an interactive adaptation of select Sappho fragments, exploring the nature of translation and inserting oneself into a text. What new meanings are made by this collaboration? What is the purpose of translating a text that is heavily fragmented? What assumptions do we place on the author based on choices of the translator? What relationship develops between the author and the translator during the act of translation?
