Burton Raffel (au). This book by Burton Raffel, one of the greatest living translators of works of verbal art into English, presents for both the specialist & non-specialist the core strategies that he employs to translate a variety of important prose texts. In the process he delineates a coherent program or theory that can inform each act of translation. Raffel considers & effectively illustrates the fundamental features of prose, those features that most clearly & idiomatically define an authorís style. He ties together theory & practice to establish sound standards for the valuation of prose translations, & he provides examples in considerations of versions of Madame Bovary, Germinal, & Death in Venice.
