This is a Classic: Translators on Making Writers Global (Paperback)

£19.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This is a Classic is an exploration of what it means to translate an established or future literary classic and how it is done by some of today's most celebrated translators.



When readers pick up literary classics from languages other than English, they often forget that they are not reading the actual words the author set down. Galasso argues that every classic depends on translation-and every new generation requires its own translation of The Metamorphosis or Anna Karenina because every translation is a new interpretation.



This is a Classic brings together translators who have created English versions of canonical works from a variety of languages, including Spanish, French, Yiddish, Turkish, Catalan, Greek, Serbian, German, Italian, Icelandic, Russian, Romanian, Portuguese, and Ancient Greek. They offer insights into their processes, challenges, and craft, providing readers with an appreciation of how a classic is shaped by translation, and how translation is essential for a classic's survival and the creation of original literary works.
