The Invisible Translator

A LoveLit event presented by Arts Derbyshire and Derbyshire Libraries

7pm, tickets £5.83 includes light refreshments

The success of a work of foreign literature depends much on the quality of its translation. Readers like to feel they are reading the voice of the author, but what does this really mean? What role does the translator play? Richard Dixon has translated the last works of Umberto Eco and many other contemporary Italian authors and poets. He will talk about the relationship between translator, author and publisher and how the importance of translators is now being more fully recognised.

This event falls shortly after the announcement of the winner of the Man Booker International Prize for fiction in translation on 21st May
