Designed for the growing number of course on literary translation, "Translating Literature" discusses the process and the product of literary translation, incorporating practical advice for translators and theoretical discussion of the role translations play in the evolution and interpretations of literatures. Exercises and examples highlight problems in translation. Lefevere shows that translations, like history, criticism, and anthologization, are part of a tradition of "rewriting" and are instrumental in the development and the teaching of literatures. "Translating Literature" concludes with an extensive bibliography of translation studies.

Review quote

"An excellent introductory volume for teachers and students alike.... The effectiveness of Lefevere's volume is further underscored by his successful effort to focus his study across cultures, rather than favoring any specific language or genre." --Analytical and Enumerative Bibliography
