Translation Poetics And The Stage from the Author: Romy Heylen. This book establishes an analytical model for the description of existing translations in their historical context within a framework suggested by systemic concepts of literature. It argues against mainstream 20th-century translation theory and, by proposing a socio-cultural model of translation, takes into account how a translation functions in the receiving culture. The case studies of successive translations of "Hamlet" in France from the eighteenth century neoclassical version of Jean-Francois Ducis to the 20th-century Lacanian, post-structuralist stage production of Daniel Mesguich show the translator at work. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the changing theatrical and literary norms to which translators through the ages have been bound by the expectations both of their audiences and the literary establishment.

Shakespeare And The Language Of Translation from the Author: . Shakespeare's international status as a literary icon is largely based on his masterful use of the English language, yet beyond Britain his plays and poems are read and performed mainly in translation. Shakespeare and the Language of Translation addresses this apparent contradiction and is the first major survey of its kind. Covering the many ways in which the translation of Shakespeare's works is practised and studied from Bulgaria to Japan, South Africa to Germany, it also discusses the translation of Macbeth into Scots and of Romeo and Juliet into British Sign Language. The collection places renderings of Shakespeare's works aimed at the page and the stage in their multiple cultural contexts, including gender, race and nation, as well as personal and postcolonial politics. Shakespeare's impact on nations and cultures all around the world is increasingly a focus for study and debate. As a result, the international performance of Shakespeare and Shakespeare in translation have become areas of growing popularity for both under- and post-graduate study, for which this book provides a valuable companion.

Europe On Stage from the Author: Gunilla M. Anderman. This comprehensive study of the history of European plays on the English stage explores the importance of cultural assumptions and linguistic stumbling blocks. Gunilla Anderman looks at varying approaches to the foreign text as well as the need for new versions of the same play, and discusses the influence of European drama in translation and its contribution to and enrichment of English playwriting. Key phrases recurring in the original works of the European canon are also scrutinised in an attempt to demystify and unearth what English readers of the translated texts may never have known they were missing. Europe on Stage: Translation and Theatre is a valuable addition to the literature on the theatre, of interest to theatre-goers, theatre practitioners and linguists as well as students of drama, comparative literature and translation studies.
