  • Ian Fairley is a translator of German. He teaches in the English Department at the University of Leeds.
    Praise for Ian Fairley 'Fairley's translations are challenging and inventive, prepared to take risks and above all to convey the uncompromising demands of the originals: his versions also show an impressive sensitivity to the rhythms and sound effects of the German.'
    Poetry Review
    'Fairley's endlessly careful and brilliantly resourceful translations...he never fails to address himself to the music of the originals.'
    Daily Telegraph
