The Scottish romance tradition c.1375-c.1550 : nation, chivalry and knighthood by Sergi Mainer( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first ever comprehensive study of the Scottish medieval romances. The book reinstates the status of the Scottish romances. It offers a new definition of the Scottish romance tradition, bringing together texts which have not generally been considered part of the same corpus. It argues that Barbour's Bruce (c .1375) established the rhetorical devices and literary traits which were going to be typical of the later Scottish romances. It also examines the extent to which the translation of the four Arthurian and Alexander romances from French originals follows Barbour's precepts. These
Self-translation and power : negotiating identities in European multilingual contexts( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book investigates the political, social, cultural and economic implications of self-translation in multilingual spaces in Europe. Engaging with the power turn in translation studies contexts, it offers innovative perspectives on the role of self-translators as cultural and ideological mediators. The authors explore the unequal power relations and centre-periphery dichotomies of Europe's minorised languages, literatures and cultures. They recognise that the self-translator's double affiliation as author and translator places them in a privileged position to challenge power, to negotiate the experiences of the subaltern and colonised, and to scrutinize conflicting minorised vs. hegemonic cultural identities. Three are the main themes explored in relation to self-translation: hegemony and resistance; self-minorisation and self-censorship; and collaboration, hybridisation and invisibility. This edited collection will appeal to scholars and students working on translation, transnational and postcolonial studies, and multilingual and multicultural identities

Translation and censorship by Sergi Mainer( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article examines the 1940 translation of Robert Burns into Spanish. The edition was published a year after the end of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), in a country which had been governed by a left-wing democratic coalition and now was ruled by a repressive dictatorship. Despite being printed by one of the new publishing houses set up by the regime, the 1940 translation recontextualized Burns's poems to challenge official discourses. By examining the difficult conditions under which literature was produced and the translators' deployment of different literary strategies such as self-censorship and the rearrangement of individual poems, this article demonstrates how Robert Burns: Poesia gives a voice to those who lost the war and to the suppressed minority cultures of Spain. More generally, it reveals how dissident ideas within the regime were expressed through literary translation as early as 1940 --
