Abstract:

Thinking through Translation with Metaphors explores a wide range ofmetaphorical figures used to describe the translation process, fromAristotle to the present.

Most practitioners and theorists of translation are familiar with a numberof metaphors for translation, such as the metaphor of the bridge, followingin another's footsteps, performing a musical score, changing clothes, orpainting a portrait; yet relatively little attention has been paid to whatthese metaphorical models reveal about how we conceptualize translation.Drawing on insights from recent developments in metaphor theory,contributors to this volume reveal how central metaphorical language hasbeen to translation studies at all periods of time and in various cultures.Metaphors have played a key role in shaping the way in which we understandtranslation, determining what facets of the translation process are deemedto be important and therefore merit study, and aiding in the training ofsuccessive generations of translators and theorists. While some of thepapers focus mainly on past metaphorical representations, others discussrecent shifts in both metaphor and translation theory, while others stillpropose innovative metaphors in a bid to transform translation studies.

The volume also includes an annotated bibliography of works centrallyconcerned with metaphors of translation.
