The Poetic Nuance in Literary Translation

American Comparative Literature Association. March 29th-April 1st, 2018 - UCLA, Los Angeles, California.

The task of translating a literary text often poses the challenge of choosing between content and form. This is, of course, conspicuous in the translation of poetry where meaning and form are indissoluble and constitute an organic whole. Prose translation can be equally exigent. Its narratological ingenuity and nuances in style demand not only verbal dexterity but also the ability to capture the magic concealed in the author’s imagery. In order to produce a version that is pertinent and meaningful to the modern reader, the translator of both poetry and prose takes certain liberties with regard to the source text but inevitably faces the challenge of fidelity to its original language and content.

I International Conference on Research in Multilingualism: Innovation and New Challenges

updated: 
Wednesday, October 4, 2017 - 10:41am
University of Oviedo, Spain
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 18, 2017

The expansion of bilingual and multilingual education in an increasingly globalised world involves a series of intrinsic challenges to which both teachers and students respond with changes and innovations – technological, methodological or procedural – with respect to the traditional model of learning-teaching. In parallel with this, it also offers an interesting field of study to undertake research into the learning of a language in all its domains – linguistic,  social, or cultural –  not only from theoretical approaches, but also in order to uncover areas of improvement and good practice.
