LITERARY TRANSLATION IN PRACTICELECCE 10 12 MAY 2012THROUGH THE SPECTRUM DIFFERENTPERSPECTIVES AND DIFFERENTTRANSLATIONS OF LITERARY TEXTS.
Christopher TaylorUniversity of Trieste TranslationDuring the normal translation process lexisand syntactic structures are transformed from.
source language to target language This apparently linear process canberendered more or less difficult by the use ofidiomatic phrases obscure terminology .
elaborate phraseology Literary TranslationThen in literary translation other factors comeinto play non casual phonological syntactic and semantic.
equivalences metaphor symbolism historical reference Register.
Dialect sociolect agelect gend... The use of regional and social dialectforms in literature give a text a sense ofauthenticity and flavour but createsubstantial problems for the translator .
Lawrence Sons and Tha should get up like other womenhave to an wait on a man Never milord I d wait on a dog at thedoor first .
What s going on Sons and Lovers is a novel about classantagonism total lack of husband wifeunderstanding a socially destructiveenvironment a historical picture .
Walter and Gertrude Gertrude is socially aspirant but marriedto a miner She despises him because he isworking class but particularly because.
he is proud of being working class His use of language Nottinghamshiredialect offends her Her vicious irony is evident in the use of milord Otherwise she uses standard.
Morel is incapable of irony but uses the tha pronoun which harks back to an erawhen the tu voi distinction existed also inEnglish and he uses it subconsciouslyor otherwise to express contempt .
Language of conflict The langauge of conflict contains fear anger regret etc one of the more complex forms ofhuman behaviour Wallwork 1978 .
Translation Franca Ti potevi anche alzare e servirmi com era tuo dovere Poverino Servirei piuttosto un cane It is not literal and this is no criticism .
and largely admirable But Poverino does not adequatelyconvey the real meaning of Gertrude sirony She would like Walter to be a lordand he would shun the idea .
The drunkenhomecoming scene Good gracious coming home in hisdrunkenness Dio santissimo e te ne torni a casa in.
questo stato Good gracious is a rather genteelexclamation and would not be expectedfrom a miner s wife especially in thesecircumstances .
She deliberately uses a superior form oflanguage towards her verbally deeprived Dio santissimo is halfway there more comment Gertrude uses the third person singular.
to mock her husband cf Guardalo The translation does not capture thisaspect of the irony This house is filthy with you E tu il disonore di questa casa .
This is a monumental line crystallisingall the turmoil Gertrude feels The fact isthat Morel always and inevitably comeshome filthy To translate well.
a thorough knowledge of the grammar idiom andstyle of the English language BUT ALSO IN THIS CASE a knowledge of turn of the century attitudes tosocial class .
a knowledge of psychological reactions to theBritish class system a knowledge of the fierce independent mentalityof the British miner a historical perspective of contemporary British.
In a few minutes the train was running through thedisgrace of outspread suburbia Everybody in thecarriage was on the alert waiting to escape At last theywere under the huge arch of the station in thetremendous shadow of the town B shut himself together.
he was in now Di l a qualche minuto il treno percorreva gli squallidisobborghi della citt Tutti i passeggeri erano all erta inattesa di evadere il convoglio Finalmente entrarono sottol enorme arco della stazione nell ombra terribile e.
immensa della citt B si chiuse in se stesso ormai era Extravagant lexis disgrace Strange expression outspread suburbia Escape from what Shut himself together mediocre translation .
as against Standard language gli squallidi sobborghi della citt Evadere dal convoglio B si chiuse in se stesso standard Further comment.
Distinguish between poetic langage and poortranslation Lawrence is talking about tha tentacle likespread of the city it is too big and Disgrace refers to a kind of moral infamy .
not squalor Escape is from this whole concept of theuniform invasive city not from the train He was in in a psychological state James Joyce.
James Joyce provides a slightly differentproblem by using language andlanguages in a very particular way A joyceful of talka talka from friendshapes.
Dubliners Even in a relatively accessible work like Dubliners we find the use of Dublindialect This is deliberate and necessaryin the portrayal of the city and its people .
BUT it is actually unlikely that mothertongue English speakers English American Australian etc are familiarwith this terminology In translation.
It is interesting though perhaps not surprising thatwhen these terms are translated into say French orItalian they are generally rendered in standardtarget text terms These words and expressions generally refer to.
everyday items and the concept of equivalenteffect Newmark Nida would dictate that theybe translated by equally unfamiliar or at leastcolloquial equivalents As this tends not to happen the foreign reader has.
easier access to the text than a native speaker Translations Franca Cancogni 1958 Marco Papi 1976 Margherita Minoja 1980 e.
Annie ed Addano Lami 1971 four very big BARMBRACKS were ready to be handedround at tea The term BARMBRACK is a modification of BORREEN BRACK which derives from the Irish BAIRGHIN a cake una.
torta and BREAC spotted picchiettato and refers to a cakewith currants All four Italian translators opted for focacce The SEI Oxford dictionary gives focaccia a flat cake or bun Il Lessico Treccani gives focaccia nome di dolci tradizionali .
but points out that the meaning can change from region to However the term is easily understandable for any Italian Ivy Day in theCommittee Room Ivy Dav in th Committee Room is full of such usage .
The term SHONEEN describes aspiring and snobbishgentlemen In this case the translations vary sudici scrocconi leccapiedi.
scrocconi signorini The illocutionary intent is that of contempt and this isrendered well enough But again all four terms are easily understood .
and in French In the French translation of Dubliners by Fernandez et al The samephenomenon can be observed Barmbracks are galettes shoneen is.
pique assiettes possible solution This may be a fatuous proposal but we couldmake use of the Trieste connection and usesome Triestino terminology .
BARMBRACK pinza SHOEBOY tirapi Some other examples SPONDULICS schei HUNKER SLIDING trapolar .
GOSTER ciacole And in Croatian With the indispensable help of Croatian colleague LilianaAvirovic the translation into Serbocroat of The Encounter wasanalysed yielding the same results .
