Reflections on Translation, Paperback / softback Book

Reflections on Translation Paperback / softback

Part of the Topics in Translation series


This collection of essays brings together a decade of writings on translation by leading international translation studies expert, Susan Bassnett.

The essays cover a range of topics and will be useful to anyone with an interest in how different cultures communicate.

Bassnett draws upon her personal experience to explore issues such as why the same things cannot be expressed in all languages, why translators in war zones risk their lives for their work, whether humour can travel across cultures, why translated menus are often so bad and whether poetry does indeed get lost in translation.
