Culture in Transit: Translating the Literature of Quebec

Edited by Sherry Simon

The essays in Culture in Transit are by many of English Canada's most prominent translators, a group which has made whole libraries of Quebec literature available to English-speaking readers. Philip Stratford, Kathy Mezei, Ray Ellenwood, Betty Bednarski, William Findlay, Linda Gaboriau, Jane Brierley, Susanne de Lotbinière-Harwood, Luise von Flotow, Barbara Godard, David Homel, Wayne Grady, and Sheila Fischman. The history of Canada has provided an exceptional platform for the development of literary translation. Culture in Transit provides a lively and thought-provoking insider's look at this essential activity.
