Abstract:

The linguistically innovative aspect of Francophone African literature has
been recognized and studied from a variety of angles over recent decades,
yet little attention has been paid to what happens to such literature when
it is translated into another language. Taking as its corpus all
sub-Saharan Francophone African texts that have ever been published in
English, this book explores the ways in which translators approach
innovative features such as African-language borrowings, neologisms and
other deliberate manipulations of French, depictions of sociolinguistic
variation, and a variety of types of wordplay. The implications of their
translation decisions are drawn out with reference to the broader
significances that are often accorded to postcolonial literature, and
earlier critics' calls for a decolonized translation practice are explored
from both a practical and theoretical angle. These findings are used to
push towards a detailed investigation of the postcolonial turn in
translation studies, drawing on the work of key postcolonial theorists such
has Homi K. Bhabha and Gayatri Spivak.

This is a timely and incisive critical assessment of contemporary
discourses on the ethics and politics of translation.
