It’s time for a Rimbaud or Babelfish? quiz
All you have to do is select which versions of the following prose poems from Arthur Rimbaud’s “Illuminations” were translated by a French Symbolist-loving human being.
Because the alternate version was translated by a software-loving machine.
I ran the original poems through a roundtrip of Babelfish and cleaned the imposters up just enough to not give them away completely. There are 10 questions. Click the button at the end to calculate your results. Sorry for the primitive technical execution.
Best to drink absinthe while playing. Cheers!
