Description In the late s a new academic discipline was born: We could not read literature in translation, it was argued, without asking ourselves if linguistic and cultural phenomena really were ‘translatable’ and exploring in some depth the concept of ‘equivalence’. When Susan Bassnett’s Translation Studies appeared in the New Accents series, it quickly became the essential introduction to this new subject.

Susan Bassnett tackles the crucial problems of translation and offers a history of translation theory, beginning with the ancient Romans and encompassing key twentieth-century structuralist work.
