Europe on Stage: Translation and Theatre  

Europe on Stage: Translation and Theatre $35.41 ex GST
$38.95 inc GST

Plays written by the major European dramatists of the last two centuries —from the firmly established classics of Ibsen and Chekhov to the recent success of Yasmina Reza—are increasingly performed on British stages, often in new translations or versions. But what distinguishes one translation from another? And what social and cultural factors of reception must the translator of a foreign play take into account?

Gunilla Anderman looks at varying approaches to the foreign text as well as the need for new versions of the same play, and discusses the influence of Europen drama in translation and its contribution to and enrichment of English playwright.

Anyone interested in theatre today will value Professor Anderman’s book as a reference source as well as a rich and enjoyable commentary on modern European theatre. - Peter Newmark, author of Translation Now in The Linguist
