The Translator's Turn (Parallax: Re-Visions of Culture and Society)by Douglas Robinson
Synopses & Reviews
"Robinson's book is original and stimulating, and I suspect it will remain a provocative landmark in its field for some time to come."--Steven Rendall, Philosophy and Literature
Book News Annotation:
Covers a wide range of fields, including technical, scholarly biblical, and literary translation; simultaneous and consecutive interpretation; signing; television subtitling; advertising; and weather reports. Robinson examines the history of translation theory--from Augustine through Luther and Goethe to the present--and offers a series of pragmatic models for creative turns the translator makes passing from culture to culture, text to text.
