Translating Modern Japanese Literature

Translating Modern Japanese Literature (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

By Donovan, Richard
Edited by None

This book presents and comments on four short works of Japanese literature by prominent writers of the early twentieth century, including Natsume Soseki and Miyazawa Kenji. These are their first-ever published English translations.The book is designed to be used as a textbook for... the translation of modern Japanese literature-another first. Each chapter introduces the writer and his work, presents the original Japanese text in its entirety, and encourages students with advanced Japanese to make their own translation of it, before reading the author's translation that follows. The detailed commentary section in each chapter focuses on two stylistic issues that characterise the source text, and how the target text-the translation-has dealt with them, before the chapter concludes with questions for further discussion and analysis.
