One of the first books to shine a light on the broad scope of translation studies, this ‘Routledge Translation Classic’ is widely regarded as a pillar of the discipline. Authored by one of the most influential translation theorists of the twentieth century, André Lefevere shows how rewriting – translation, anthologization, historiography, criticism, editing – influences the reception and canonization of works of literature. Ranging across various literatures, including Classical Latin, French, and German, and here reissued with a new preface by Scott Williams, this is a seminal text for all students and specialists in translation studies, literary theory and comparative literature.
