Literary Translation

Translation is a vital part of literature. Without literary translation many of the greatest works of world literature would remain unknown and inaccessible to us. A society without translators would be a society without Homer or Plato, Anton Chekhov or Proust. The Program in Literary Translation welcomes students from all disciplines and levels who are interested in experiencing the art and craft of literary translation from another language into English. Students will be introduced to translation as a craft that has an artistic and ethical basis in a new globalized reality, and we will study a range of international practices and theories of literary translation.
