It develops the skills necessary for translating a wide range of literary texts from German into English, as well as from English into German. Students are generally expected to translate from the foreign language into the native language. Attention is paid to the particular challenges that arise in translating between two closely related languages, German and English, which have developed their own characteristic range of structures, vocabulary and literary styles. Texts examined include prose and poetry, covering a wide range of registers, including classic literature, contemporary writing and children's literature. The course also covers some background in translation methodology, cultural factors in translation, as well as register and style.
