Workshop in Literary Translation
FREN 302
Spring 2009
Section: 01  

The aim of this course is to develop the art and craft of literary translation among those students who have both a good knowledge of French and an already exhibited stylistic sensitivity in English. A wide chronological range of works--short narrative, theater, and verse, both traditional and free--from a diverse body of authors will provide the material for semiweekly sessions devoted to mutual criticism and discussion. Each student will also work throughout the semester on an individual translation project of his or her choice. A number of relevant critical texts will be read.

Essential Capabilities: Interpretation, Writing
Due to the nature of translation, students will develop their interpretative skills and perfect their writing skills as they translate a variety of texts from French into English.
