WLIT 260 - Literary Translation

Description
In this course, we will study, and practice, the art of translation. If you have fulfilled Drew's language requirement (a language through the intermediate level), then you are eligible to take this course. Students will explore classic essays that have formed the foundation of translation theory and examine them in practice by comparing multiple translations of a text. Students will apply these theories as they attempt to translate a short work of fiction or poetry that they will share with the class in a workshop format. Students may work from any language into contemporary English; that the language can also be a dialect, or historical variety, of English. Prerequisite: Signature of Instructor Required for Registration.
