is pointless, right?

Yes and no, some poetries still deliver a message, others lose it completely after a translation.
Studying what is being said isn't pointless though.

No. Shouts out to Szymborska

The message in a poem is secondary to the aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of the rhyme scheme. If you cannot preserve the rhyme scheme in the target language you should not translate the poem. Because if the prosody and the rhyme scheme are no longer intact, you do not have a poem in your target language.

Depends whether you hold the artist's intent as sacred or not. Personally I don't and will judge a translation at face value. If I deem it to be of value then that's great. I don't treat it as if it's the same as the original though. It's just another thing and there's no problem treating it as such.
I'm currently having the odd flick through a bilingual poetry book where the author wrote both the English and Chinese versions. In some ways that's cool to know that the 'intent' has been preserved.

Your life is pointless, tbh

well, a translated poem can be good too, but I would consider it completely different from the original work. Except for the poems which rely on ideas and concepts and not the poetic beauty.
>>
>>7224669
never.
i'm considering the posibility of learning russian just for the poetry

snort. what is it, like, poetry about potatoes? and being cold? haha
>>
>>7225548
Nope, it's about fucking cold people with potatoes within a Gulag.
>>
Yes, unless its some kind of slam poetry-like nonsense.
>>
I guess that depends on whether you get something out of it or not.
