But on the whole, she has efectively entered into the spirit of the poems, the rythms, attitudes and meanings ---- but there are places where the translations do not correspond with the originals because the meaning has had to suffer on account of the rythms, metrics, rymes - the extent to which meaning takes second place to technique is a discussion all of its own" (P. Krumins)
