Writing Workshop : Maureen Freely – What is Literary Translation?

Description

We all know that translations cannot be trusted, unless we are certain, as readers, that they are accurate and faithful to the original. But what does that actually mean in practice? What are the principles that working translators abide by, when the text they hope to carry into a new language is subtle and complex? In this session, Maureen Freely will offer a few examples from her own work to draw out some of those principles. She will also give participants a chance to attempt this difficult art for themselves.


Admission: RM 50
