Seminar “The Art of Literary Translation”


Course Code: WLTT Categories: , , Tags: ,


Literary translation is  a rewarding practice that allows us to deepen our reading and writing skills. In this two-hour class we will look at literary translation as a reading and writing practice by looking at published translations and trying our hand at various translation exercises. Participants are encouraged to read the article from Literary Hub “10 Literary Translators on the Art of Translation” where 10 translators speak about their approaches to literary translation.

Barbara Thimm is a writer, translator, and educator. Her translations of selected poems by Timothy Donnelly and Mary Jo Bang were published by luxbooks in Germany. “A Discovery Behind the House,” the translation of a short story by Ror Wolf, appeared in Asymptote. She lives in Cambridge with her husband and two sons.
