Unpublished PhD.


The author first examines the literary context of Alasdair Gray's Lanark, trying to assess the function of literature and translation nowadays, contrasting the notion of 'literary translation' with that of 'translated literature.' He also focuses on the importance of text analysis, literary and social background as associated with a literary work written in contemporary Scotland. In a final instance, he assesses the position occupied by the work in the source and target polysystems.
