Tension rythmique et traduction / Rhythmic Tension and Translation, eds. Christine Raguet et Marie Nadia Karsky

Abstract : Considered an important criterion for assessing the quality of a translation, rhythm nonetheless remains vaguely defined in Translation Studies. Present in all forms of discourse and in all literary genres, rhythm is associated with several concepts (alternation, relationship, proportion, return, regularity, periodicity, tempo, cadence) and can stem from a variety of didactic, psychological, aesthetic or other objectives. Grouped around three main areas of reflection, “Rhythm in Poetry,” “Rhythm, Theatre and Theatricality,” and “Translating Musically Rhythmic Prose,” the articles in this companion volume to Palimpsestes 27 make a significant contribution to our understanding of the challenges rhythmic tensions represent for translation, through analyses of works of major authors (Homer, Shakespeare, Dickens, Yeats, Virginia Woolf, James Baldwin, Bernard-Marie Koltès, Cabral de Melo Neto, Michael Ondaatje).
