VUW students translate Mary Maringikura Campbell
The poem by Mary Maringikura Campbell, ‘Consider this’ was first published in the collection ‘Maringi’ (Kotaha Press, Porirua, 2016) and it has been included in her new book ‘Yellow Moon – E Marama Rengarenga’ (HeadworX, Wellington, June 2020). Many thanks to the author for granting kind permission to reproduce and translate this poem into Italian and to NEKE for publishing the best translation works of my students of Italian 201-2020, School of Languages and Cultures, Victoria University of Wellington/Te Herenga Waka. My translation of the poem will appear soon also in the selection ‘Matariki, sciame di stelle: poetesse maori contemporanee’ (Collana ‘Affluenti’, Edizioni Ensemble, Rome) along with the translation of other poems by Aotearoa’s indigenous female authors.
