By Heart – Uit Het Hoofd is a bilingual collection of poetry by significant poets from Britian and the Netherlands. Translating poetry is an art. Sometimes it is not just language but culture which must be translated, as demonstrated by this title. By Heart means the same as the Dutch Uit Het Hoofd, “By Head”.

In this collectin the six poets have collaborated on tranlations of material reflecting their own concerns, which range from Daljit Nagra’s experience of being British/Asiam; the Dutch/Morrocan Mustafa Stitou’s contemporary political interests; Sarah Corbett’s specifically female perspective; Maria Barnas’ vivid imigery; while Antony Dunn and Jan-Willem Anker draw on that which is outside the everyday.

All write with their heads and their hearts.
