Jiří Levý's seminal work, "The Art of Translation", considered atimeless classic in Translation Studies, is now available in English. Havingdrawn on adjacent disciplines, the methodology of Czech functionalsociosemiotic structuralism and the state-of-the art in the West, Levýsynthesized his findings and experience in the field presenting them in areader-friendly book, which combines the approaches of a theoretician,systemic analyst, historian, critic, teacher, practitioner and populariser.Although focused on literary translation from theoretical, descriptive andhistorical perspectives, it presents a conceptualization of a general theory,addressing a number of issues discussed today. The 'practical' mission ofthe book as a theory extending to practice is based on the same historical-dialectic affinity of methods, norms, functions and values, accounting for thetranslator's agency and other contextual agents involved in thecommunication process. The book will be useful to translators, researchers,students and teachers in Translation and Literary Studies.
