This selection of papers from the ITI's landmark First International Colloquium on Literary Translation includes provocative perspectives on the teaching, research and status of literary education in universities. By way of introduction Peter Bush looks at strategies for raising the profile of the theory and practice of literary translation, its professionalisation and role in the development of national and international cultures. Nicholas Round and Edwin Gentzler explore undergraduate teaching of translation in the UK and the US while Douglas Robinson gives a Woody Allenish frame to an experience of pedagogy. Susan Bassnett sets out an overview of the development of research in Translation Studies that is complemented by case studies of translations of Shakespeare's Letter-Puns by Dirk Delabastita and of Molly Bloom's Soliloquy by Maria Angeles Code Parrilla. Kirsten Malmkjær and Masako Taira respectively review translating Hans Christian Andersen and the Japanese particle ne as examples of the relationship between linguistics and literary translation. Ian Craig examines the impact of censorship on the translation of children's fiction in Francoist Spain. Developing the international perspective, Else Vieira considers paradigms for translation in Latin America from concretist poetics to post-modernism

Counter A stunning debut by one of Mexico's most dazzling younger writers. In 1916, Victor Kretzchmar and Thadeus Dreyer face each other over a chessboard on a train heading to the Austro-Hungarian Empire's disastrous Eastern Front. The stakes are high: the winner will take Kretzchmar's identity as a railway signalman and live out the war in safety. The loser will go to certain death. In 1943, the decorated World War I hero and influential Nazi General Thadeus Dreyer is in charge of training doubles to stand in for leading Nazis at dangerous public events. But when the Amphitryon Project falls out of favor with Goering, Dreyer and the doubles disappear. In 1960, Adolf Eichmann, a master chess player, is arrested in Buenos Aires, where he has been living under an assumed name. One of the few escaped Nazis to be recaptured, he is extradited to Israel and executed. Only an old Polish count claims to know Eichmann's true identity, but he dies before it can be revealed. The clues to what ties all of these men together are concealed in an old manuscript that the count has left to his heirs, an unlikely trio of misfits who suddenly find themselves at the center of a dangerous game. This gripping novel explores questions of identity and history against the turbulent backdrop of twentieth-century Europe

The Gray Notebook by Josep Pla( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first part of the book, which begins on March 8, 1918, is a story of family life on the Costa Brava and the coming-of-age story of a young man torn between an old-fashioned ideal of a life of quiet dedication to work and family and the intellectual seductions of European culture. Pla's enthusiasms and uncertainties, friendships and crushes, his reading, the drama and politics and absurdity of family life-we are drawn into all these as we also follow Pla in his wanderings through town, scrutinizing his fellow citizens, or out under the magnificent skies of the still-unspoiled countryside of the coast. In January 1919, Pla returns to Barcelona to complete his studies, and the book's second part paints a hilariously revealing picture of student life. He learns next to nothing from his teachers, a good deal more from the writers and artists he meets in cafés and salons, and most of all from Barcelona itself, with its night life and ramblas, the city of Gaudi and Modernisme, where just outside the city limits the seemingly timeless life of the country still went on as before
