"Portals, Gates": The Classics in Modernist Translation

As Steven Yao observes in *Translation and the Languages of Modernism,* both the practice and the idea of translation were integral to experimental early twentieth-century modernist work in English: "feats of translation not only accompanied and helped to give rise to, but sometimes even themselves constituted, some of the most significant Modernist literary achievements in English." And in their translation work, many anglophone modernists were especially responsive to the literature of Ancient Greece and Rome. As H.D. would note of the work of Euripides, whose plays she translated, "these words are to me portals, gates."

"Changer ou partir" : poétique de l'exil

Dans un contexte d'instabilité politique accrue doublé d'une crise économique prolongée, il n'est guère étonnant de constater que les discours d'extrême droite opposent de plus en plus ouvertement une politique d'assimilation à la promotion de la différence qui s'est imposée comme valeur sociale à partir des études culturelles1. « Changer ou partir » : voilà le choix auquel l'ethos nationaliste confronte aujourd'hui encore les minorités culturelles, comme l'a récemment commenté Marie-Michèle Sioui en résumant ainsi la posture que la division québécoise de la PÉGIDA a adoptée à l'égard des communautés musulmanes.

What do ancient burial sites, haunted houses, post-apocalyptic landscapes, and even recent topographical manifestations of the Gaza conflict or the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 all have in common? Even if they no longer bear the physical markers of violence, the geographic locations of devastation and human suffering are often imbued with memories of horror that are passed on from generation to generation through various textual, audial and visual media.
