Translation/History/Culture; A Sourcebook


Translation/History/Culture is a collection of the most important statements on the translation of literature from Roman times to the 1920s. Arranged thematically around the main topics which recur over the centuries--power, poetics, language, education--it contains many texts previously unavailable in English.As the first survey of its kind in both scope and selection, Translation/History/Culture argues that translation commands a central position in the shaping of European literature and cultures. It re-establishes in the reader's mind the unbroken continuity of the tradition of translation and reveals the topicality of many of the texts included. Serving as both a textbook of translation history and as a starting point for further discussion about translation, it is a valuable addition to the shelves of literary historians, theorists of literature, students and teachers of comparative literature and cultural studies, and scholars of translation.
