Essays on translation

Edward Balcerzan, Stanisław Barańczak

Edited by Kasia Szymanska, Magda Heydel

The following selection of essays by Balcerzan and Barańczak touches upon the poetics of literary translation in many ways, questioning for example its special mode of being, its multiplicity and polyphony, its potentially polemical and dissociative aspect, its relationship with artistic creation, and the possible methods of approaching its literariness and poetic meaning. These essays represent the fruits of their almost life-long quest for answers regarding translation. Thanks to this volume, international readers can judge for themselves how successful it was and whether it has stood the test of time.
