Translating Rimbaud's Illuminations, Paperback / softback Book

Translating Rimbaud's Illuminations Paperback / softback


Translating Rimbaud's Illuminations is a critique of the assumptions which currently underlie our thinking on literary translation.

It offers an alternative vision; extending the parameters of literary translation by showing that such translation is itself a form of experimental creative writing.

It also provides a reassessment of Rimbaud's creative impulses and specifically his prose poems, the Illuminations. In the expanding field of translation studies, a brilliant and demanding book such as this has a valuable place.

In addition, it also provides some fascinating `hands on' translation work of a very practical kind.

Published as a sequel to the author's Translating Baudelaire (UEP, 2000), it will become part of the canon.
