About the Author

Jeremy Munday is Senior Lecturer in Spanish Studies at the University of Leeds. He is also author of Introducing Translation Studies: theories and applications and coauthor (with Basil Hatim) of Translation: An advanced resource book.


"Munday (Spanish studies and translation, U. of Leeds) explains how and why style differs in translations. He notes that identical translations would probably be the result of a miracle, and yet the process by which they have been constituted would still differ as would their significance. In eight precise and inter-linked essays he explores discursive presence, voice and style in translation, and how these elements apply within the ideological contexts in the translation of South American works. He examines the work of Harriet de OnA s and other pre-1960s "classical" translators, the work of many translators on the voice of Garcia MA!rquez, the particular case of Gregory Rabassa, the shifts of the political in translation, and style in audiovisual translation. His closing chapter on translation and identity is particularly good." -- Book News Inc., August 2008
