Translating Rimbaud's "Illuminations": Games with Words
Slote, Daniel
Meta, 23, 1, 86-96, Mar 78
Rimbaud's "Illuminations," one vast word-game, is used as an example of one of the most interesting challenges in translation--the rendering of plays on words. The process is discussed and illustrated by the analysis of numerous segments from "Illuminations." It is concluded that a satisfactory translation is almost impossible. (AMH)
