Front Cover
E. Mellen Press, 2001 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 237 pages
This study introduces the reader to the complex problems translators face. It also shows how methods derived from the theory and practice of translation can be used to revitalize the interpretation of literary and humanistic texts. One of the major tools to achieve a thorough reading of a text is the use of multiple translations. The chapter on the discussion of multiple translations is the first of its kind to study the nature of interpretive perspectives.
