there is a problem of what Coliva calls cognitive locality, the Moderate position could adequately address it. I consider this in Section 3. It is crucial to the Moderate position that the tacit presupposition of certain background assumptions is constitutive of empirical rationality. The second issue

The poem-in-translation refuses to be pinpointed to a specific locality. If we want to think of it in spatial terms, we need to regard it as an encroachment. Influenced by the cognitive research on conceptual blending (conducted by Fauconnier and Turner) and inspired by Clive Scott’s suggestion that literary translation is designed to trace the original’s trajectory between its birthplace and the translator’s here and now (cf. Translating Rimbaud’s Illuminations, 2006), I demonstrate how the poem-in-translation can be composed and read surrounded by expanding archival and bibliographical material. The understanding of the text as “an environment of words”, borrowed from genetic criticism (cf. Deppman, Ferrer and Groden 2004), allows me to consider the poem-in-translation not so much as a locality bounded by the translator’s native culture, but as a place expanding while the translator traverses the surrounding territories of the page, textual variants and readings in other cultures. To illustrate my argument I examine how Frank O’Hara’s spatial engagement with New York, reflected in the sprawl of his verse, has assisted my thinking about Marcin Swietlicki’s (non-)participation in the Polish urban culture and his projections of the city. My English translations of Marzanna Kielar’s poetry located conceptually in Poland’s north — the poet’s imaginary homeland — embrace other norths. The experimental work of Krystyna Milohedzka attempts to hint at the “between”, where language meets experience, page and silence. In my variants a Milohedzka poem has relocated itself to accommodate the spacing of Pascale Petit’s versions of the Chinese poet Yang Lian. My examples show the poem-in-translation as a manipulable array of mental spaces (see also Lefevere’s view of translation as manipulation).

Therefore, we will take a closer look at the internal social, economic, and political institutions, social networks and cognitive frames, the vital social forces that shape the social topography of a locality to make it more or less adaptable to global challenges.
