Advanced Literary Translation

Students will choose, early in the semester, one author to focus on in fiction, poetry, or drama. All work will be translated into English and discussed in a workshop format. We will address the challenges of revising, with the goal of arriving at a 25-30 page sample of the author’s work. Weekly readings will focus on the comparison of pre-existing translations and also on some translation theory.

Application required.
