The Translator as Author

Perspectives on Literary Translation. Proceedings of the International Conference, Universita per Stranieri of Siena, 28-29 May 2009

Edited by: Claudia Buffagni, Beatrice Garzelli, Serenella Zanotti

This volume is a collection of studies on the issue of authorship in translation. Leading translation scholars and professional translators discuss the theoretical implications and applicability of the author-translator paradigm. The relationship between translators and authors is addressed in its various manifestations, from the author-translator collaboration, to self-translation, to authorial practices of translating. While offering multiple perspectives, in terms of both theoretical approaches and cultural backgrounds, the volume offers an important and original contribution to the current debate.
