Abstract:

Where Theory and Practice Meet is a collection of nineteen papers in
translation studies. Unlike many similar books published in recent decades,
which are mostly non-translation-oriented, veering to issues with little or no
relevance to translation, this book focuses on the translation process, on
theory formulation with reference to actual translation, on getting to grips
with translation problems, and on explaining translation in language which can
be understood by the general reader.

Perceptive and wide-ranging, the book covers language pairs that include
Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Latin, and Classical
Greek, and discusses, among other things, translations of Dante’s La Divina
Commedia; translations of Shakespeare’s Hamlet; Goethe’s “Prometheus” as a
case of untranslatability; the challenge of translating Garcilaso de la Vega’s
“Primera Égloga” into Chinese; John Minford’s translation of martial arts
fiction; and Lin Shu’s translation of Alexandre Dumas’s La Dame aux camélias.
