Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
These five essays examine the construction of 'Englishness' through vernacular translation by critically analysing the cultural and political implications of translation and the construction of English subjectivities at particular times.
Main Description
In recent years the marginal position which has defined translators and their texts has come under increasing and sustained challenge. However, although translation and subjectivity has been thoroughly considered in terms of post-colonialism and post-structuralism, there are few discussions which focus specifically on the construction of "Englishness" through vernacular translation. Using a range of theoretical approaches the five essays in this volume aim to realise such an understanding of translation by critically analyzing the cultural and political implications of translation and the construction of English subjectivities at particular historical moments.
