LITR 070R. Translation Workshop

This workshop in literary translation concentrates on translation theory and practice, working in poetry, prose, and drama as well as editing. Students will participate in an associated series of bilingual readings and will produce a substantial portfolio of work. Students taking the course for LING credit will write a final paper supported by a smaller portfolio of translations.
Excellent knowledge of a language other than English (equivalent to a 004 course at Swarthmore or higher) is highly recommended or, failing that, access to at least one very patient speaker of a foreign language.
