Marc Tritsmans (b. Antwerp, 1959) is a Belgian poet. He has published thirteen volumes of poetry. In 2011 he was awarded the ‘Herman de Conickprijs’ (the most important poetry award in Flanders) for Study of the Shadow. In 2019 his twelfth volume, The Singing of the World, was translated into Afrikaans by Daniel Hugo. Many of his poems were translated into English by James Brockway. These translations appeared in British literary magazines (The London Magazine, Acumen, Envoi, The Poet’s Voice, Poetry Review, Orbis, The Frogmore Papers, Smiths Knoll, etc.) between 1993 and 2000, the year James Brockway died. It wasn’t until 2019 that John Irons started translating some of his new poems into English. A number of these new translations have appeared in Acumen and are forthcoming in Poetry Salzburg Review and The Frogmore Papers.
