Translation as Collaboration

Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield and S.S. Koteliansky

Claire Davison

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • The first in-depth study of the impact that translating from the Russian had on these individual writers as well as on the shaping of modernist poetics in general
  • Feeds into a recent renewal of interest in the intense era of Russian fever in the early 20th century
  • Focuses on the processes of translating including negotiations with style, voice, and textual rhythm
  • Tackles the cultural and historical dynamics of translation, charting a tangible link between aesthetic readings of modernism and later more historiographical approaches
