The Art Of Accommodation from the Author: Leon Burnett. This collection of essays is a seminal contribution to the establishment of translation theory within the field of Russian literature and culture. It brings together the work of established academics and younger scholars from the United Kingdom, Russia, the United States, Sweden and France in an area of academic study that has been largely neglected in the Anglophone world. The essays in the volume are linked by the conviction that the introduction of any new text into a host culture should always be considered in conjunction with adjustments to prevailing conventions within that culture. The case studies in the collection, which cover literary translation in Russia from the eighteenth century to the twentieth century, demonstrate how Russian culture has interpreted and accommodated translated texts, and how translators and publishers have used translation as a means of responding to the literary, social and political conditions of their times. In integrating research in the area of translated works more closely into the study of Russian literature and culture generally, this publication represents an important development in current research.

Translation In Russian Contexts from the Author: Brian James Baer. This volume represents the first large-scale effort to address topics of translation in Russian contexts across the disciplinary boundaries of Slavic Studies and Translation Studies, thus opening up new perspectives for both fields. Leading scholars from Eastern and Western Europe offer a comprehensive overview of Russian translation history examining a variety of domains, including literature, philosophy and religion. Divided into three parts, this book highlights Russian contributions to translation theory and demonstrates how theoretical perspectives developed within the field help conceptualize relevant problems in cultural context in pre-Soviet, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russia. This transdisciplinary volume is a valuable addition to an under-researched area of translation studies and will appeal to a broad audience of scholars and students across the fields of Translation Studies, Slavic Studies, and Russian and Soviet history.

Translation And The Making Of Modern Russian Literature from the Author: Brian James Baer. Brian James Baer explores the central role played by translation in the construction of modern Russian literature. Peter I's policy of forced Westernization resulted in translation becoming a widely discussed and highly visible practice in Russia, a multi-lingual empire with a polyglot elite. Yet Russia's accumulation of cultural capital through translation occurred at a time when the Romantic obsession with originality was marginalizing translation as mere imitation. The awareness on the part of Russian writers that their literature and, by extension, their cultural identity were "born in translationÂ?? produced a sustained and sophisticated critique of Romantic authorship and national identity that has long been obscured by the nationalist focus of traditional literary studies. By offering a re-reading of seminal works of the Russian literary canon that thematize translation, alongside studies of the circulation and reception of specific translated texts, Translation and the Making of Modern Russian Literature models the long overdue integration of translation into literary and cultural studies.

Historical Dictionary Of Russian Theatre from the Author: Laurence Senelick. A latecomer continually hampered by government control and interference, the Russian theatre seems an unlikely source of innovation and creativity. Yet, by the middle of the nineteenth century, it had given rise to a number of outstanding playwrights and actors, and by the start of the twentieth century, it was in the vanguard of progressive thinking in the realms of directing and design. Its influence throughout the world was pervasive: Nikolai Gogol', Anton Chekhov and Maksim Gor'kii remain staples of repertories in every language, the ideas of Konstantin Stanislavskii, Vsevolod Meierkhol'd and Mikhail Chekhov continue to inspire actors and directors, while designers still draw on the graphics of the World of Art group and the Constructivists. What distinguishes Russian theater from almost any other is the way in which these achievements evolved and survived in ongoing conflict or cooperation with the State. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Russian Theatre covers the history through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 1000 cross-referenced entries on individual actors, directors, designers, entrepreneurs, plays, playhouses and institutions, Censorship, Children’s Theater, Émigré Theater, and Shakespeare in Russia. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Russian Theatre.

Jean Fran Ois Regnard from the Author: Charles Mazouer. Cinquante ans après le maître livre d’Alexandre Calame sur Jean-François Regnard, un colloque s’imposait pour dresser déjà une sorte d’état présent des études consacrées à un auteur qui, s’il est toujours joué dans les théâtres, reste passablement méconnu et trop sous-estimé. Ce colloque a fait davantage, en permettant de renouveler notre lecture d’un écrivain si varié. Plus de vingt communications, ici publiées, dont les auteurs sont souvent de jeunes chercheurs, ont précisément mis au jour la diversité de l’œuvre de Regnard, en proposant plus que des aperçus sur l’esthétique et l’esprit de cette œuvre, dont la réception est également abordée. Connu pour ses comédies écrites à l’intention de la troupe italienne installée à Paris et pour la Comédie-Française, Regnard fut aussi dramaturge tragique, librettiste, auteur de récits de voyage, romancier ! Touchant à bien des genres, il les a reliés par des passerelles ; on retrouve des procédés d’écriture communs qui relèvent d’une esthétique de la bigarrure. Par ailleurs, l’idée s’impose assez fortement d’un écrivain qui maîtrise les règles et les techniques littéraires et qui, par le jeu, l’ironie ou la parodie, prend distance par rapport à elles, dans un climat de grande fantaisie. Le rire de Regnard est ainsi de grand sens : il est celui d’un joyeux anarchiste. Le théâtre de Regnard, dramaturge comique que l’on considérait comme le successeur de Molière, s’est diffusé en Europe ; au moins jusqu’à la fi n du XVIIIe siècle, la fortune de ses comédies est bien assurée. Charles Mazouer est professeur émérite à l’Université Michel de Montaigne-Bordeaux 3. Dominique Quéro est maître de conférences à l’Université Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV).
