Summary
"Sarah Austin (1793-1867), one of the most distinguished English nineteenth-century translators of German texts, described translation as an activity which allowed her to secure herself "behind the welcome defence of inverted commas". This book argues that translation is not an innocent, transparent, shielded and unpolitical literary task. It aims to overcome the anonymity, silence and lack of creativity associated with the process of rendering texts from one language into another by placing centre stage a network of British nineteenth-century intellectuals who specialized in translations from the German."--Jacket
