By JOHN HERRICK
"Language is not a prefabricated
tool. It is a creative art." These
are the words of Chirtopher Mid-
dleton, an English poet and an
outstanding translator of modern
German poetry.
According to Middleton there is
more to translating poetry in any
foreign language than simply giv-
ing a close literal translation and
making the same lines rhyme as
they did in the original.
Language can do many amazing
things but the things that it can
do are done differently in different
languages. The meaning of the
poem can not be retained, nor can
the beauty be retained by an
academic copy of the original
poem.
Major Differences
There are major differences be-
tween any two languages, even
two languages as similar as Ger-
man and English.
One of the particular differences
Middleton mentioned was in the
breathing rhythm. This rhythm is
entirely different in the two lan-
guages, with the English tending
towards,short units and the Ger-
man towards long ones.
When the poem is being trans-
fated as literature, the same effect
of the long breathing units in the
German must be achieved in Eng-
lish. So Middleton feeds he must
find an English analogy to this
rhythm. The analogy should con-
tain the same implications, emo-
tions, intensity that the original
pattern had in German.
Academic Literalness
This is also true, says Middle-
ton, for the rhyme scheme. An
academic translator will tend to
translate the poem litrally and
then force the rhyme pattern as
much as necessary to make it
match exactly the original rhyme
scheme.
Here again Middleton feels that
it is necessary to find an English
analogy to the original structure,
rather than trying to duplicate the
German.
In a good poem there was some
good reason why the poet had the
rhyme scheme he did. And the
rhyme scheme was not forced.
Translating the poem literally and
then forcing an identical rhyme
defeats this whole effort.

about a translation of a poem is
that it be natural sounding Eng-
lish," according to Middleton. To
illustrate this point he quoted
Goethe, who had an extremely
high reputation for naturalness.
Goethe said that he "applied art
to artifice to achieve naturalness."
"Translating from one language
to another teaches one more about
how flexible his own language can
be." According to Middleton, this
was one of the most important
things about good poetry. It should
use language creatively by chang-
ing word order one can give ac-
cents and connotations to a word
that it never had before. In this
way a poem can open up life un-
der a whole new light by com-
pletely changing one's perspective.
It was this in particular that
Middleton liked about American
poets, including the so-called
beats. He felt that the English
tended to use language as it was,
and he included the Angry Young
Men in this indictment. The
Americans change language and
play with it and its cliche's to
achieve something new, exciting
and vital.
Published in this country are
"Torse 3" and "Modern German
Poetry."

0. Francis (R-Midland) however
indicated that the Senate may wait
until after the election on the new
constitution next April.
Gov. John B. Swainson said aft-
ed Justice Stewart granted a de-
lay:
"The state administration is pro-
ceeding quickly to expedite the
holding of the senatorial primary
in a manner that conforms to le-
gal process."
Romney View
Industrialist George Romney, a
Republican who will oppose Swain-
son's re-election bid in November,
said "The decision has permitted
at least a brief period of relative
calm in a confusing situation, but
we must remember the basic is-
sue is not settled yet."
Romney urged anew at the
same time that Senate apportion-
ment as provided in a proposed
new state constitution be submit-
ted to the voters in November. It
apportions seats on a formula
based 80 per cent on population
and 20 per cent on area. The full
new constitution is not to be vot-
ed upon until next April.
Vote Needed
A two-thirds vote in each house
would be needed to place the new
apportionment formula on the No-
vember ballot. Democrats in both
houses, plus Swainson and other

SUSPENDED-Both gubernatorial candidates, incumbent John B.
Swainson (left) and GOP hopeful George Romney, agree that U.S.
Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's decision only delays a final
solution to the reapportionment problem.

CHRISTOPHER MIDDLETON
... translating poetry
Middleton feels that it is better
to destroy the original rhyme
scheme completely and work in a
natural English rhyme scheme
which fulfills the same purposes
the German poet originally ful-
filled with his rhyme scheme.
"The most important thing

party leaders, have condemned the
plan as unrepresentative and have
demanded apportionment of both
houses on population only.
State AFL-CIO President Au-
gust Scholle, whose suit originat-
ed the court action, declared that
the effecting of state verdict is
"only a matter of time."

cause it simply means nothing
more than a delay of the inevit-
able," he said.
"There can no longer be a cry
raised about insufficient time for
appeal. The question will be dis-
cussed on its merits alone and an
appeal to the United States Su-
preme Court will be made on that
basis," he asserted.
Deny Protection
Scholle contends that Senatorial
apportionment in a constitutional
amendment adopted by Michigan
voters in 1952 denies him "equal
protection" as provided by the 14th
Amendment to the United States
Constitution. The state amend-
ment itself outlines districts. Some
have 12 times the population of
others.
The state court held the Michi-
gan apportionment amendment
violated the "equal protection"
guarantee of the federal consti-
tution and ordered a return to
apportionment by population as
provided in the state's 1908 Con-
stitution.
The 1908 Constitution provides
for a 32-member Senate, whereas
the 1952 amendment raises it to
34 members.
