The Subversive Scribe

Translating Latin American Fiction

Book - 1991
Rate this:

In The Subversive Scribe , one of our most versatile and creative translators of Latin American fiction offers an intimate glimpse into the remarkably complex relationships that lie behind the act of literary translation. In this highly accessible book-- hardly a how-to manual!-- Suzanne Jill Levine writes of intersections of language, life, and cultures, while she reveals to us the crucial part the translator of linguistically complex fiction plays in making such work available to readers of another language and culture.
