Title: Translation and the Problem of Sway
Written By: Douglas Robinson
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BTL%2092
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 92
Description:

In Translation and the Problem of Sway Douglas Robinson
offers the concept of "sway" to bring together discussion of two
translational phenomena that have traditionally been considered in
isolation, i.e. norms and errors: norms as ideological pressures to
conform to the source text, and deviations from the source text as
driven by ideological pressures to conform to some extratextual
authority. The two theoretical constructs around which the discussion
of translational sway is organized are Peirce's "interpretant" as
rethought by Lawrence Venuti and "narrativity" as rethought by Mona
Baker. Robinson offers a series of “friendly amendments” to both,
looking closely at specific translation histories (Alex. Matson to and
from Finnish, two English translations of Dostoevsky) as well as
theoretical models from Aristotle to Peirce to expand the range and
power of these concepts. In addition to translation and interpreting
scholars this book will be of interest to scholars of communication
and social interaction.
