About this product
- DescriptionSarah Austin (1793 - 1867), one of the most distinguished nineteenth-century translators of German texts, described translation as an activity which allowed her to secure herself behind the welcome defence of inverted commas . This book argues that translation is t an incent, transparent, shielded and unpolitical literary task. It aims to overcome the anymity, silence and lack of creativity associated by placing centre stage a ntework of British nineteenth-century intellectuals who specialized in translations from German. The ideas about linguistic and cultural transmission which were discussed by the translatiors featuring in this study, as well as a selection of texts they chose to render into English, are examined. In addition, the book explores cross-currents between translation and gender studies, nineteenth-century developments in the visual arts, linguistic scholarship and historiography as well as travel writing. Translation this emerges as a force which has the potential to alter culture, while it can itself be modified by cultural developments.
