Literary Translation

This course is meant to provide the interested student with a practical and theoretical base for approaching the translation of literary texts (those in which style is as important as meaning).
The course will be a combination of lecture, discussion, and translation workshop. A number of readings will be required for discussion in class; several exercises meant to reinforce practical and theoretical points raised in class will also be assigned. Finally, each student will be required to translate a literary text, which will be discussed in class in a workshop fashion. The student will also be expected to read the work of his/her classmates and be prepared to comment on them.
