Abstract:

"Designed for the growing number of courses on literary translation, Translating Literature discusses the process and the product of literary translation, incorporating both practical advice for translators and theoretical discussion on the role translations play in the evolution and interpretation of literatures. Exercises and examples highlight problems in translation. Lefevere shows that translations, like history, criticism, and anthologization, are part of a tradition of rewriting and are instrumental in the development and the teaching of literatures. Translating Literature concludes with an exhaustive bibliography of translation studies."--
