Translation and the Empathetic Imagination: An Interview with Dr. Chae-Pyong Song.

 

Translation_and_the_Empathetic_ImaginationDespite the fact that most American readers are familiar with the long-sustained success of translated works, few of us have thought to peek behind the velvet curtain to thank the unsung poet-hero who allows us to experience them: the translator.

Consider successful contemporary novels like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Reader. Who wrote these? If you don’t know, I can either tell you—Stieg Larsson and Bernhard Schlink, respectively—or you can check the cover of the book. Next question: Who translated them? I have no idea. Both texts sit before me, cover up, but the translator is, as Chronicle for Higher Education writer Jennifer Howard would say, “Like a discreet waiter who keeps the glasses filled while remaining practically [and unjustly] unnoticed.”

We all know bad translation when we see it—that’s easy. But when it’s seamless, when it’s impeccably on, the translator etherizes and the author bows before us. 

To offer not only a defense of why translation matters, but to walk us through his translation process, we are pleased to share with you Translation and the Empathetic Imagination, a free download from Marygrove College associate professor of English, Dr. Chae-Pyong Song.

Enjoy.

Even in the 1950s Panerai watches were large, often being 47mm wide. Now, for all intents and purposes Panerai still makes these same designs today. In audemars piguet replica uk fact, just about all Panerai makes today is from a design that cartier replica sale was either directly caused to become or inspired by watches made from the 1930s to the 1950s. To say that these watches don't exist is not entirely correct. What would be cool is a louis vuitton replica sale come back to this design by Rolex itself. Imagine a large-sized cushion-shaped diver with all the simplicity and fun design of the original with an increased exposure of modernizing it and using a contemporary Rolex movement.
