Translation and the Arts in Modern France

Translation and the Arts in Modern France sits at the intersection of transposition, translation, and ekphrasis, finding resonances in these areas across periods, places, and forms. Within these contributions, questions of colonization, subjugation, migration, and exile connect Benin to Brittany, and political philosophy to the sentimental novel and to film. Focusing on cultural production from 1830 to the present and privileging French culture, the contributors explore interactions with other cultures, countries, and continents, often explicitly equating intercultural permeability with representational exchange. In doing so, the book exposes the extent to which moving between media and codes—the very process of translation and transposition—is a defining aspect of creativity across time, space, and disciplines.

She is author of Baudelaire's Prose Poetry: The Practice and Politics of Irony; editor of A History of Women's Writing in France, Ebauches/Esquisses: Projects and Pre-Texts in Nineteenth-Century France; and coeditor of Birth and Death in Nineteenth-Century French Culture.

Reviews

"With the overall high quality of its essays, and its innovative focus on intermediality as a lens through which to theorize translation, this volume makes a thoughtful contribution to ongoing discussions in translation studies and nineteenth-century literary history."—French Studies
