About the Author

André Lefevere was Professor of Germanic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.


"An excellent introductory volume for teachers and students alike.... The effectiveness of Lefevere's volume is further underscored by his successful effort to focus his study across cultures, rather than favoring any specific language or genre." —Analytical and Enumerative Bibliography
