San Francisco: Translation Center / Union of Left Writers, 1982. Paperback. 63p. in stapled wraps. Covers a bit soiled with some fading to edges and along spine fold.
One issue of the radical literary journal, with poetry by American and international writers with appended translations, seemingly into whatever languages someone interested could muster. In this issue: "The Falklands war and the Israeli state terrorist aggression into Lebanon have sharpened international contradictions since the last issue... and since U.S. imperialism had a direct hand in both situations, this issue of Compages contains not only cross-cultural response to such situation, but many American poems translated into other languages which either evoke or expose the real roots of these capitalist shenannigans." ... "Palestinian Arabic, Yiddish from the Soviet Union and Armenian are the new languages we add to our spectrum."
