Contesting Peter Newmark.
Viaggio, Sergio
A discussion of the theoretical and practical work of Peter Newmark on translation asserts that despite his claims to the contrary, Newmark does have a single, coherent theory of translation, that it is a wrong and didactically dangerous one, and that he nonetheless has made a substantive and welcome contribution to the development of translation as a discipline. His translations and his thinking, it is argued, are better than his theory. The analysis is based on a review of a series of Newmark's articles on translation, most contained in one collection, and a textbook. Each writing is examined in some detail, and conclusions are illustrated with examples from translations from Spanish and Russian. Contains more than 130 references. (MSE)
