"Should be required reading for everyone in the field of comparative literature, for it speaks to translation as interpretation and as creative transfer, and to the fact that good translators ought to be recognized for what they are: good writers. . . . Essential."--Choice
"A welcome addition to the Latin Americanist's toolkit."--Adria Frizzi, University of Texas at Austin
The past few years have seen an explosion of interest among U.S. readers for Latin American literature. Yet rarely do they experience such work in the original Spanish or Portuguese. Elizabeth Lowe and Earl Fitz argue that the role of the translator is an essential--and an often ignored--part of the reception process among English-language readers.
Both accomplished translators in their own right, Lowe and Fitz explain how stylistic and linguistic choices made by the translator can have a profound effect on how literary works are perceived by readers unfamiliar with a foreign language.
Touching on issues of language, culture, and national identity, Translation and the Rise of Inter-American Literature offers a broad comparative perspective rarely found in traditional scholarship.
