Let's Talk About Translation: A Body of Translation Theory and Female Desire in Brossard's Mauve Desert

updated: 
Friday, April 27, 2012 - 4:04pm
Ramapo College of New Jersey

Nicole Brossard's Mauve Desert is a feminist intertext, which Susanne Lotbiniére-Harwood's Re-Belle Et Infidéle states: "Is a body of text written in the feminine by feminists rereading and rewriting what other feminists have written and spoken" (126). Throughout history, the privatized female semantic space inhibited the bilingual nature of the woman and her ability to speak in both the dominant, masculine language system and her own muted tongue, which, in turn, allows her to succeed in the art of translation.

Intertextuality and the "Rape" of Miranda: The Tempest and Eastwords

updated: 
Friday, April 27, 2012 - 4:04pm
Ramapo College of New Jersey

James E. Portar states, "not infrequently books speak of books. Not infrequently, and perhaps ever always, texts refer to other texts and in fact rely on them for their meaning." In my paper, I wish to explore intertextuality—how writers draw ceaselessly from the past, highlighting the transience and fragility in their own narrative, and how the mere rendering in two stories of analogous setting, characters, and plot, can change meanings inexorably. Specifically, I will analyze Shakespeare's "The Tempest" alongside its 21st century counterpart "Eastwords" by Kalyan Ray.
