Publication type
Edited volume
Publication language


This book deals with the theoretical thinking and practical research carried out by an international group of scholars who are convinced that Translation Studies is one of the most significant branches of comparative literature. They argue in favour of a rigorous descriptive and scientific (testable) approach to the phenomena of translation; they regard it as essential to link the study of particular translated texts with a broader methodological position; and they aim in general to win for translated and other ‘refracted’ texts a wider recognition among literary scholars than they have hitherto received.
