Interest in the issues of translation continues to grow, and is reflected in this collection of essays by specialists in both literature and translation studies, all of whom have experience of translating literary texts themselves. The essays include both diverse theoretical approaches and practical case studies, and a wide range of topics are covered, including the history of translation in Scotland, the problems of translating Chinese poetry into English, renaissance theories of translation, George Eliot's translations, and Eastern European perceptions of English Romantic literature. Professor SUSAN BASSNETT teaches at the Centre for British and Comparative Cultural Studies at the University of Warwick. Contributors: SUSAN BASSNETT, THEO HERMANS, FELICITY ROSSLYN, ANDRE LEFEVERE, PIOTR KUHIWCZAK, JOHN CORBETT, SUSANNE STARK
