Laertes is an independent press committed to literary translation — to the furthering of that particular art. Our aim is also to relay works from far and wide, in any genre, that render the full human weight.

We publish books, chapbooks, and acting editions of plays — all in translation. Our Egret imprint concentrates on pressing themes and circumstances, on literature with a documentary bent. We think of ourselves as a humanities organization.
