Qvale, Per. 2003. From St Jerome to hypertext: translation in theory and practice. Manchester: St. Jerome. 293 pp.


This book attempts to chart the terrain of literary translation - its history, theory and practice. It examines translation from linguistic, extralinguistic and philosophical perspectives and poses a range of important questions relating to the creativity of the original, bridging the gender and generation gap in translation, and the impact of processes of internationalization, multimedia communication and technological innovations on literature in translation. Individual chapters offer detailed treatment of topics such as the relationship between author and translator, wordplay and language games, syntax, cultural biotopes, understanding and meaning, and the process of translation.
