LITERARY TRANSLATION IN THE CLASSROOM.
BROWN, CALVIN S.
LITERARY TRANSLATION IN THE CLASSROOM CAN PROVOKE DISCUSSION WITH GREAT PEDAGOGICAL VALUE EVEN THOUGH A DEFINITIVE TRANSLATION IS NOT THE GOAL. A VERSE FROM HORACE AND ONE FROM DU BELLAY ILLUSTRATE THE POSSIBLE CHOICES OF VOCABULARY AND PHRASING WHICH EVEN TWO RELATIVELY STRAIGHTFORWARD LINES PRESENT. AN ALERT TEACHER CAN BRING OUT SUBTLETIES OF MEANING REFLECTING PAST WAYS OF LIFE, CORRELATE THEM TO CURRENT EXPRESSION, AND SHARPEN A STUDENT'S UNDERSTANDING OF BOTH A FOREIGN LANGUAGE AND HIS OWN. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE ARCH," VOLUME 14, NUMBER 1, WINTER 1966-67, PAGES 1-6. (GJ)
