Douglas Robinson offers the most comprehensive collection of translation theory readings available to date, from the Histories of Herodotus in the mid-fifth century before our era to the end of the nineteenth century. The result is a startling panoply of thinking about translation across the centuries, covering such topics as the best type of translator, problems of translating sacred texts, translation and language teaching, translation as rhetoric, translation and empire, and translation and gender.

This pioneering anthology contains 124 texts by 90 authors, 9 of them women. Sixteen texts by 4 authors appear here for the first time in English translation; 17 texts by 9 authors appear in completely new translations. Every entry is provided with a bibliographical headnote and footnotes.

Intended for classroom use in History of Translation Theory, History of Rhetoric or History of Western Thought courses, this anthology will also prove useful to scholars of translation and those interested in the intellectual history of the West.

About the Author:

Douglas Robinson is associate professor of English at the University of Mississippi. He is author of The Translator's Turn, Translation and Taboo, What Is Translation? and Translation and Empire. A freelance translator of literary, scholarly, and technical texts between Finnish and English since 1975, he was formerly associate professor of Finnish ­English translation theory and practice at the University of Tampere, Finland, and is past president of the Finnish­American Translators Association.

Review:

Douglas Robinson ... has rendered a great service to all those interested in translation theory, both as a fundamentally linguistic construct and as a Western socio-cultural phenomenon. (K. Lloyd-Jones, International Journal of the Classical Tradition) Every translator should dip into it and sample our professional discipline in its historical persective. (Ronald Sim, Notes on Translation) ... bound to become the major anthology in English ... a splendid achievement. (Theo Hermans, Translation and Literature)
