Reading Tolstoy and Flaubert in English
Mon 16 April 2012 - Mon 21 May 2012
Institute of Continuing Education
If we wish to read the great works of world literature, we often find ourselves compelled to read in translation. This new short course at Madingley Hall will consider problems and theories of translation and, at the same time, will engage you in a close reading of two world masterpieces: Lev Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, and Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary.
As you explore and compare these two novels, you will discover the differing historical and cultural contexts out of which they arose, how their various translations differ, and how those differences may affect our interpretations of the novels. The course will help develop a sensitivity to issues of translation that you can apply to other works of literature translated into English.
