I would like to present a literary form which mixes poetry and translation, and as such, encompasses both creative and translation fields. This form, while being based on a traditional approach to translation, i.e. a translation which focuses on rendering as best as possible the meaning, the rhythm and the sound of the original text, is nonetheless a creative translation, because, as we shall see, it produces new knowledge. It is also a tool, and we will see how and why.
