What is a specific source of information that you have found valuable in answering your inquiry question? How has it proved valuable? Explain.


The website above has been an incredibly valuable source because it provides me with a variety of translated poems, from many different noted Russian poets. The most important thing about this website is that it includes both the original poem and the translated version on the same webpage, allowing me to instantly compare and contrast the two poems and find the differences in style, structure, and content. This has allowed me to realize that a lot of Russian to English poem translations sacrifice certain necessary descriptions and meaningful words to complete a rhyming scheme. I personally think that the idea, descriptions, and mood that the original author was trying to give the poem are very important and should be worked into the translation without fail and have noted this for my own translations.
