The Quick and the Dead

(p.152) Chapter 7 The Quick and the Dead
Poetry & Translation
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the ethical issues relevant to the translation of the works of both the living and dead poets. It suggests that the reputations of the dead are as much in hands of the translators as those of the living and contends that the great deceased from other cultures will die twice if their works are not read and translated. It discusses Henry Gifford's view that ‘translation is resurrection’ and analyses the concept of self-translation.

Keywords:   translation, poets, great deceased, other cultures, Henry Gifford, translation is resurrection, self-translation
