Product Description

Review

"Venuti opens up new perspectives and, gives rise to fresh thinking...A stimulating collection of essays on current questions in Translation Studies."- Yves Gambier, University of Turku, Finland  

"An important contribution to one of the main challenges for translation studies today: bridging the gap that still separates what is viewed as 'theory' from the actual practice of translation and, consequently, the establishment of a more productive dialogue between practicing translators and students of translation in general." - Rosemary Arrojo, Binghamton University, USA

Product Description

In Translation Changes Everything leading theorist Lawrence Venuti gathers fourteen of his incisive essays since 2000.


The selection sketches the trajectory of his thinking about translation while engaging with the main trends in research and commentary. The issues covered include basic concepts like equivalence, retranslation, and reader reception; sociological topics like the impact of translations in the academy and the global cultural economy; and philosophical problems such as the translator’s unconscious and translation ethics.


Every essay presents case studies that include Venuti’s own translation projects, illuminating the connections between theoretical concepts and verbal choices. The texts, drawn from a broad variety of languages, are both humanistic and pragmatic, encompassing such forms as poems and novels, religious and philosophical works, travel guidebooks and advertisements. The discussions all explore practical applications, whether writing, publishing, reviewing, teaching or studying translations.


Venuti’s aim is to conceive of translation as an interpretive act with far-reaching social effects, at once enabled and constrained by specific cultural situations.


This latest chapter in his developing work is essential reading for translators and students of translation alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veni, Vidi, Venuti... 4 Dec 2012
By DAR VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Lawrence Venuti is one of the most widely read Translation Studies scholars in the world. This collection contains his most important essays written since the publication of the groundbreaking The Translator's Invisibility: A History of Translation. The essays are varied and well chosen, and mark Venuti's personal evolution as a scholar and researcher alongside developments in the field. His introduction lays out his progressed thinking and makes fascinating reading on its own. One cannot understate his stature as a theoretician and translator. His ability to express complex ideas and remain readable is a true gift to the student of translation studies. Will definitely appeal to a wide audience of translators, scholars of literary translations, and scholars who translate.
