Reviews

“The ambitious attempt to launch a discussion about the apparently fluid boundaries of literary translation and Translation Studies with neighboring disciplines has resulted in a compilation bearing a ground-breaking initiative. A helpful Index and the Bibliography following the Introduction may also serve as useful reference tools for newcomers to the field of studying literary translation. … can be recommended both for seasoned practitioners and theorists of literary translation, as well as any other reader with an interest in Translation Studies.” (Eszter Krakkó, Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies, Vol. 21 (2), 2015)
