Based on a great deal of recent research performed by academics investigating works translated from/into English, this book provides fresh perspectives to the field of translation studies. It combines theoretical and practical aspects of the translation process with a comprehensive set of thoroughly commented examples. Perspectives in Translation Studies is a structurally complex volume which: * Is especially designed to cover insights into a wide range of British and American literary products (novels, short stories and poetry) * Comparatively examines patterns of language use in English and other languages, referring both to pairs of verbs and phraseological constructions (collocations and idioms, pre-fabricated or ready-made phrases and proverbs) * Explores some of the globalization challenges in the translation of national films into English It is ideal for every person with an interest not only in the art or the making of a translation but also in the result of the translation process.
