This edited volume gathers a number of contributions on literary-theoretical translation research within the scope of Romanic Studies. Some of the issues discussed include political chansons from Béranger, translations of Spanish literature after 1945, Dante, Molière, Baudelaire, Proust, Neruda or the often misrepresented treatment of French book titles, stylistic issues in translating old literary texts, the translatability of lyric and other topics. The book also considers translation theories from the Middle Ages until Postmodernism.
