Translation as Metaphor by Rainer Guldin

In today's ever-changing climate of disintegration and recombination, translation has become one of the essential metaphors, if not the metaphor, of our globalized world. Translation and Metaphor is an attempt to draw a comprehensive map of these new overlapping theoretical territories and the many cross-disciplinary movements they imply. In five chapters, this book examines:

· The way the notion of metaphor relates to the concept of translation.

· Different theoretical perspectives on metaphors of translation in translation studies.

· The main metaphors developed to describe translation in the West and in the East.

· Spatial metaphors within translation studies, cultural studies and postcolonial theory.

· The use of the metaphor of translation across psychoanalysis, anthropology and ethnography, postcolonial theory, history and literature, sociology, media and communication theory, and medicine and genetics.
