"Airborn" is a bilingual sequence of sonnets written jointly by the Mexican poet Octavio Paz and his English fellow poet and translator Charles Tomlinson. In their forewords, the poets explain how the poems came to be written and translated. As Charles Tomlinson writes, 'These collaborative poems were the result of a meeting, early one summer in Gloucestershire, when, out of the many words we had thought and spoken, we chose 'house' and 'day' as the words for a future postal meditation in sonnet form'.
