About this book

This study emerges from an interdisciplinary conversation about the theory of translation and the role of foreign language in fiction and society. By analyzing Shakespeare's treatment of France, Saenger interrogates the cognitive borders of England - a border that was more dependent on languages and ideas than it was on governments and shorelines.

About the authors

Michael Saenger is Associate Professor of English at Southwestern University.

"A signal achievement - illuminating and engaging at every turn." - Patricia Parker, Margery Bailey Professor of English and Dramatic Literature and Professor of Comparative Literature, Stanford University
