Great translation is a dynamic and creative process which instills a work with new meaning and power. In this very special class, Michael Henry Heim, one of the world’s foremost literary translators, shares his techniques and knowledge on the art of translation. He covers how to approach a text and the skills required to guide you through the process, and analyses the relationship between author, translator and text. Heim has translated contemporary and classical fiction and drama from Czech, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Romanian and Russian. He recently published new translations of Chekhov’s plays and is now working on his first translation from Chinese. This class is for everyone, offering insight into translating a range of languages into English. (Lunch and coffee included.). Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival
