Translation and the Classic

J. M. Coetzee

Oxford University Press

Exchanges between the novelist J. M. Coetzee and a number of his translators (including those into German, French, Dutch, and Serbian) illustrate some of the problems typical of literary translation. For instance, choosing among semantically equivalent terms that carry differing cultural connotations, or rendering sentences whose syntactic structure bears part of the semantic load.
