They brought his old servant—only then did he break down and weep. But I saw my humanity look back at me there. It is to mark the contradictions of a daily love that I have written this. She particularly highlights that, contrary to received history, freedom permeates her love for both.

Therefore, she is committed to publicly re-establishing the past as a scene of elements privately chosen, as well as to inhabit such scene with her own feelings as a woman in a tradition which has traditionally silenced her kind. Therefore, a new terrain has to be explored or, at least, the edges of this well-known place need broadening.
But such routine is regarded in very positive terms. Boland excels at portraying highly sensorial landscapes: Boland also suggests strong associations of images with wild animals in Irish land. Edged in dateless moonlight. The lovers thus fully integrate within the Irish landscape as its natural inhabitants. These mental landscapes are highly dependent on memory as a poetic device, that is, Boland feels the need to do justice to those spaces —and its inhabitants— suffering the violence of silence and oppression.
Therefore, she rescues from oblivion histories of the Irish past muted by the lack of interest by the social and political circumstances. So, the Irish poet sets herself an appalling task: Furthermore, Boland reaches further in her consideration when linking constellations to women to make their existence noticeable and meaningful: The ships, the compasses and night skies owe their being to these women in the sky: And the mill wheel turned so the mill could make paper and the paper money.
Boland, however, describes herself as nature poet portraying indoors and her poetry is frequently labeled as domestic. That reverence to nature poetry lies in the fact that Boland, like other nature poets, attempts to delve into the sight before her eyes in order to experience it by transcending the barriers of time and place. A famous battle happened in this valley. You never understood the nature poem.

Till this moment—if these statements seem separate, unrelated, follow this silence to its edge and you will hear the history of air: After setting the scene, the critic continues: Boland has generously referred to her views of what a poem is pristinely made for: I write them to experience it.
And it is in this reshaping that a fresh approach to the received reality takes place. Yet, not only history but myths are used in her poetic forging. Boland puts the emphasis on such multiplicity: The place which existed before you and will continue after you have gone. Yet, the critic adds, the Poem is such place where she represents and recognizes herself In fact, one of the sources for her need to reconstruct lies in her early discovery that history and past were not synonym terms.
The landscape that Boland reconstructs through her verse is not the suburb of Dundrum, not even the past as received from history; it rather springs to life thanks to her re-landscaping poetic vision. But Boland resists the labeling as feminist together with poetry: The poem is a place—at least for me—where all kinds of certainties stop. All sorts of beliefs, convictions, certainties get left on that threshold. Simply because the poem is a place of experience and not a place of convictions. Nevertheless, Boland concedes what became so important for her when commenting on the poet Sylvia Plath: We always knew there was no Orpheus in Ireland.
No music stored at the doors of hell. No god to make it. No wild beasts to weep and lie down to it. Poetry and other arts: In addition, photographs, paintings, engravings, sculptures, or other artworks commonly appear in her poetry. Photography, painting, music certainly excel as methods of expression. Others, like photography for instance, are much better. However, Boland recognizes the advantage that poetry has over other arts: In the same line, Boland employs the metaphor of painting landscapes when expressing nuances of her poetry: There were no maps in our house when I was growing up, none that I remember.
But there were maps at school. This poem begins—or at least I intended it to—where maps fail. I was certainly aware, long before I wrote this poem, that the act of mapmaking is an act of power and that I—as a poet, as a woman and as a witness to the strange Irish silences which met that mixture of identities—was more and more inclined to contest those acts of power. He highlights that any kind of distance —physical, temporal, intellectual and affective— supplies the background setting in which the poet works out the imperfect and imprecise meaning of things But such play with distance or empty spaces between the portrayed objects is the mechanism which provides, as in painting, the perspective 14 A twin declaration is her famous statement: But such spaces are not simply absences.
Indeed, the limits of paintings are surveyed as well. In Night Feed Boland uses some paintings as poetic matter: And how much control Stand by the window: This leads her to poetically re-landscape—re-create, reshape, reconstruct— the past which remains out of history and out of maps and to meaningfully link it to the present.
She employs memory as a means to particularly rescue disregarded instances of oppression and injustices from the past and again link it to the present. Pictorial landscaping of these poetic concerns results in an appropriate metaphor for approaching the very many nuances of her craft, as well as it is for her, who continues to use these images liberally.

Aunque el papel de la The Grove. Relying on memory and her own resources, she cobbled together neglected rites, merged Europe medicine with native, scripture with lore, and recalled or invented the hidden meaning of things. Found, in other words, a way to be in the world. Toni Morrison, A Mercy Throughout her writing career, Toni Morrison has been often asked whether her novels can be analyzed from an autobiographical standpoint.
From her earliest interviews, she has steadfastly disavowed any conscious use of autobiography in her writing, on the grounds that the core of her writing lies mainly in the realm of imagination, combined with personal and collective recollections and some research. Likewise, as a member of the African American community in the United States, she feels indebted to autobiography as a genre since it represents the origins of written African American literature in her country.
Literary archaeology is described by Morrison in the following terms: On the basis of some information and a little bit of guesswork you journey to a site to see what remains were left behind and to reconstruct the world that these remains imply. As a matter of fact, the recollections Morrison uses in her narrative usually hark back to her own African American community —their socio-cultural dimension together with their ethnic lore— her family and even herself. Thus, her endeavors to explore the interior life of her ancestors, her family and the world she came from, imply an ensuing self-knowledge and encounter with her own self in what is clearly an implied autobiographical drive.
Duvall claims the interconnectedness between both genres which sometimes escapes the conscious intentions of the writer: Jones she leaves the door open to a deeply close connection between what is actually autobiographical and what is not. Morrison expresses this in-between position as follows: Her childhood and upbringing weigh heavily on all her works, as well as a special concern with ethnogenesis and identity politics, which is intimately connected to her own lived experience as an African American woman in the United States. Music, the oral tradition of storytelling, myth, dream The Grove.
This is an autobiographical sketch of part of her family, some of whom appear in her novels. A grandeur, a cohesiveness, a constant reminder of what they all had done to survive and even triumph over He spoke the language in the old way The song in Song of Solomon is a song from that wing of the family in Alabama. So I altered the words for Song of Solomon. Thus, there is a The Grove. Therefore, the name Son Green in Tar Baby appears as a doubly loaded name and attests to undeniable autobiographical connections.
Claudia was born the same year as Morrison. Both come from poor but non-self-debased families, unlike the Breedlove family. I have an older sister, but our relationship was not at all like the girls in The Bluest Eye. But here are scenes in The Bluest Eye that are bits and pieces—my father, he could be very aggressive about people who troubled us.
The story line of a young girl who hankers after blue eyes was also taken The Grove. The ending is highly revealing in this respect: I was Pecola, Claudia And I fell in love with myself. I reclaimed myself and the world—a real revelation. She remembers overhearing her mother and other women talk about a woman named Hannah Peace in a way that implied there was some kind of unspeakable secret around her. Female bonding will reappear as a main thematic line in Love. The theme of the Great Migration of African Americans to the North at the beginning of the twentieth century will appear again in Jazz.
Milkman Dead, Son Green, Sethe, Joe and Violet Trace, Heed and Christine Cosey and Florens are some examples of characters re-born to a renewed identity, after either having confronted a painful past or having acknowledged and claimed a previously disavowed ethno- cultural and ancestral baggage. Brought up in a working-class family in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, she soon learned the vital importance of being faithful to oneself and to family. To her father, who during his upbringing in the South had lived amidst racism and violence against African Americans, whites were inferior to blacks precisely because of their amorality and inhumanity.
Although she was raised in a multicultural town where workers from different European origins lived and there were not actually black neighborhoods, she could still experience some instances of segregation in places which were reserved to whites only. Thus, she soon learned about race and its implications from her parents and grandparents. Whereas her father and grandfather were wary of whites and had no hope of change, her mother and grandmother held a more optimistic view on the issue of racism and oppression. At home, with your people.
Just go to work; get your money and come on home. This is what I heard: Whatever the work, do it well, not for the boss but for yourself. Your real life is with us, your family. You are not the work you do; you are the person you are. On another occasion, Morrison tells another lesson from her father related to work and dignity. He worked as a ship welder and Morrison remembers how one day he told her he had welded such a perfect seam that he had signed his name on it. When his daughter, Morrison, asked him what the use was of a signed work nobody would ever see, his father provided another sustaining lesson: The idea of survival is very much in keeping with that of ancestral connection.
Conversations with the dead and visitations from the beyond are abundant in her books. Such concern for the ancestors has a lot to do with her background, both with her African American milieu and with her own family, where ancestors and the supernatural were one more element of their daily lives. The Ancestor as Foundation. And it is out of these learned and selected attitudes that I look at the quality of life for my people in this country now. Ancestral characters meddle in spiritual matters and provide guidance and solace to others. They are the connection with spirits of the dead.
In the idea of the black outlaw woman coalesces supernaturalism, mother wit, tricksterism and healing skills. Although some of these women do not actually perform as a literal healer or conjure woman, all of them provoke to some degree The Grove. They came for other kinds of medical care too. At home she grew up immersed in the tradition of storytelling, listening to ghost stories told by her parents and her grandmother kept a dream book to interpret the dream symbols.
Although Morrison converted to Catholicism when she was a teenager Li 12 , she draws on both Catholic religion and African American religious beliefs and her novels are good proof of this hybridity. When talking about her novel Paradise, the author points to this conscious religious syncretism, resorting once again to autobiographical elements: First, we live in a dual existence.
We are American citizens, yet, we are not. We have one identity that are two identities, Secondly, we may embody a predisposition to diunity that arises from our African identity.

As such, their ambiguous and indeterminate attributes are expressed by a rich variety of symbols, In fact, their real identity or nature is not always clear and they leave the door open to multiple interpretations by the reader. Their marked bodies in most cases hint to a supernatural connection. In her interview with Cecil Brown, she states: Thus, by advocating liminality, in- betweenness, paradoxes and defending the merging of different points of view and diverse voices in her work, Morrison is once again taking the cue from the lessons she learned from her family and the richness of her ethno-cultural background.
In a similar vein, 4 According to Bass, conjurers are usually physically marked by a birthmark or red eyes, for example Although Morrison has always tried not to talk about her husband and her divorce, she has nonetheless referred to her married life in the following terms: When she is actually asked about her diverse roles in life, she is prompt to assert that nothing is as important to her in life as writing, except her being a mother to her children Ross. Morrison has found in writing her safe haven and her life, a path to self-discovery through the recollections and imaginative exploration of her personal experience and that of her family and community.

Originally published in Massachusetts Review 18 Cornell University Press, Such a sisterhood, which can be found in a wide range of circumstances, operates as a counterbalance or compensation for the hardness of the personal and social conditions surrounding female characters. To support this thesis this paper will analyze two African novels which share the same colour1 in their title: In both books this colour shares a similar symbolic meaning that will be explained in the article. Hopefully, by the end of this paper, readers will have been shown that sisterhood is an essential element, as well as a repeated behavioral model, in the literature written by African women.
However, as she is not an African but an Afro-American woman writer, I have purposely left it out of my analysis. In order to clarify key concepts, I have considered relevant to begin with an explanation of the meaning, connotations and different interpretations of the word sisterhood. Besides, this term does not have an alternative concept —as womanism versus feminism3— and, on the other hand, it also leads to shortcomings since it assumes solidarity among women rather than considering it a goal to be reached, as I will explain in the next paragraphs.
Due to this perception, the feminist ideology could not identify itself with a word referring to motherhood because this was a doomed concept, something that its followers wanted to avoid. On the other hand, feminist women found it possible to identify themselves with sisters who feared the father and wanted to become separated from their mothers: The mother-daughter relationship was hierarchical, but sisters were equal. Sisterhood, which developed to signal the gender exclusivity necessary for white women to escape male control, also symbolized common victimhood and shared oppression, which made for equal relations and solidarity.
Here in lies the historical and cultural roots of sisterhood. This author holds the view that western feminist discourses follow the same path, since they consider the white woman as the general rule and the model to look at. On the other hand, western feminists were the ones to study, to create knowledge and do research, thus making clear that they were intellectually superior to all the other women. Besides, from the west, many African traditions are viewed as barbaric because their own perspectives or contexts have not been considered.
Once explained the connotations of the term sisterhood, I will start the analysis of the two novels considered in this article. Both book titles possess a symbolic content. Their friendship bond is strong, The Grove. By that turning point of her existence, she has learnt that the person who has been battered by life is the most resilient against adversities.
Her husband, who had never shown any love or respect towards her, has died; her in-laws have thrown her and her children away from their former home and, in spite of all these adversities, Kauna even dares to dream with a better future and with worthwhile men, as her farewell conversation with her friend Ali shows: You have not seen anything yet. You know what happens to the mahangu millet? She never complains about them, even though it is going to be much harder to start a new life with the children under her charge, but in African societies motherhood4 is extremely valued and very rarely will a woman reject her maternal responsibilities.
However, Kauna does not accept passively tradition —which keeps women almost permanently pregnant— but, on the contrary, she secretly takes contraceptives that Sustera, the local nurse, has provided her. Nevertheless she does it in secret as Kauna knows that, if her husband knew it, he would kill her and the nurse. This is a fact that does not only appear in this novel but in many others written by African women.
While a few items will traditionally be sold by men, most of the trading activity is conducted by women. For example, the United Nations Development Fund estimates that 80 percent of all food production, processing, and marketing in West Africa is carried out by women. Chamlee 79 In this respect, I would like to clarify that one of the basic differences between African and Western women refers, precisely, to work.
In this case Adaku, unhappy with her limited existence, decides to build up a more satisfactory one. In order to reach her goals which, in the long run, will be based on trading, she starts by abandoning her husband and by entering prostitution as a means to improve her own life and that of her daughters. Actually, those around Adaku admire this woman, who has the courage to become successful even though her methods have not aways been orthodox.
But this associative tradition is not at all new: In rural environments the most important female bonds usually take place among members of the same family but in the city, where a new way of life takes place, the closest relationships of sisterhood have to be established with the neighbours, who are the people available7. And in the second novel, Puple Hibiscus, the female bond takes place between in-laws because Beatrice has no other options, as she does not have any relationship with other women apart from with her sister-in-law Ifeoma.
However, the main supportive aspect from The Purple Violet of Oshaantu I want to concentrate on involves a wider solidarity than the expected from a close friend. I cannot but fully agree with A.

She uses this solidarity among her female characters to counter the oppressive gender ideologies and hierarchies in their society … The women in the community thus provide a supportive network for Kauna, 7 African novels written by women provide numerous examples of these situations in which the closest bonds among women take place with neighbours. When a woman cannot complete the cultivation of her land on her own before the rains come, she invites other women in the community to help her with the required physical work on a particular day.
Women are traditionally the ones in charge of farming as their husbands are far away working in cities or mines: Most of our husbands, in fact most able young men, worked hundreds of kilometres away from home. Except for the head- man and a few older men, this village was headed, literally, by us, the women. Strong physical effort under an unbearable heat joined these village women together in a way that no other circumstances would have favoured.
Probably one of the most moving and poetic parts of this novel is, precisely, the description of the shared time in the okakungungu and the beautiful consequences it brings about, as we can see in the following quotations: We worked and worked. We worked with one spirit. We worked as if we competed for a prize. There was a wonderful spirit, a spirit of sisterhood.
For once, all ill-feeling and hate were forgotten. We were one again, sisters sharing a common cause. I wished the spirit would last forever among us. Although this okakungungu lasted just one day, a feeling of sisterhood and communal responsibility enveloped us in a strange and cheerful sense of oneness. I felt connected to these women, these sisters, these mothers, these aunts, and grand-mothers.
As we parted I looked at them and thought, Yes girls, you have done it again. Ifeoma will play what I consider a maternal8 role with Beatrice: When Mainini is suffering from a non-diagnosed depression that makes her unable to look after her baby, to take care of herself and sometimes even to get up in the morning or eat, Lucia leaves her life and runs next to her sister. Her warm and protective presence will patiently lead her sister Mainini to reestablish contact with the other female community members in the village, to recover her spirit and be able to take on her responsibilities again.
It shows that she accepts me. However, she is extremely respectful and delicate with Beatrice, her sister-in-law, who lives and thinks very differently. That is why I describe such a relationship as maternal: Ifeoma unconditionally accepts Beatrice without any judgement but patiently listening and providing her sister-in-law with tenderness and with an affective closeness. On the other hand, Beatrice accepts her husband Eugene in silence, passively and resigned. In these situations Beatrice tries to comfort her children, to reduce the seriousness of these actions but she never reacts, an attitude that makes Kambili experience a mixture of contradictory emotions of love and rejection towards her mother that she does not fully understand: Mama reached out to hold my hand.
Her face was puffy from crying, and her lips were cracked, with bits of discolored skin peeling off. I wished I could get up and hug her, and yet I wanted to push her away, to shove her so hard that she would topple over the chair. Not only is he portrayed as an abusive and extremely strict father, but also as a remarkably worthy man, both intellectually and humanly, with a strong personal and political commitment despite the serious physical risk this behaviour involves in a military controlled country like his.
Eugene overtly rejects corruption and political tyranny; he is extremely rich but proportionally generous and not only through public donations, but also with other private generous actions that do not look for any public consideration. However, together with his virtues, Eugene can simultaneously present violent attitudes when what he considers correct is not done the way he wants and his disappointment can even lead him to take violent actions against the members of his own family: To sum up, Eugene embodies an idealistic but fanatic character suffering from the deep confrontation between his convictions and opinions on the one hand and his family behaviour on the other: It looks like denying a phenomenon and embracing it at the same time.
Simultaneously, this novel refers to the two main resistance focuses against military authority, which are journalism and university. In her search for family harmony, Beatrice even asks her children to be especially affectionate with a father who, at times, causes them so much physical and psychological pain: The second resistance focus, the university, is related to Ifeoma, whose job as lecturer presents readers not only with all the problems this institution has to face but also with the active response against goverment abuses of which students and some teachers are responsible for.
However, she is usually unable to react because her submission to her husband is so deeply internalized that she does not even imagine that she has the possibility to resist. There are thorny and painful matters which neither Beatrice nor Jaja or Kambili ever mention because of an unspoken agreement, as there are certain things that should not even be named. This happens between mother and daughter: Perhaps it was so that we would not ask the other questions, the ones whose answers we did not want to know. Had Jaja forgotten that we never told, that there was so much that we never told?
Perhaps we wil talk more with time, or perhaps we never will be able to say it all, to clothe things in words, things that have long been naked. This apparently innocent act becomes a symbol of his faith in the future, of his eagerness for change and of his deep hope. This is one of the reasons why not only Jaja and Beatrice, but Kambili as well, will experience a profound personal transformation.
She will now be able to establish relationships with people apart from her father, mother and brother: When this one, devastated, communicates Ifeoma and Kambili that she has had a The Grove. She sat with her legs stretched out in front of her. She cried for a long time. She cried until my hand, clasped in hers, felt stiff. Jaja will soon be released from jail —where he had gone after he pleaded guilty of poisoning his father— and Kambili feels strong, full of future projects and capable of making plans involving her mother and cheering Beatrice up.

Mundo Negro, Here, the literary legacy becomes the main character. The reader should recognise this legacy in order to understand the novel. The purpose of this article is to analyze the intertext of the Russian literature and its components, and to distinguish their functions in the novel. We identify direct mentions, quotations and allusions of some Russian writers. We also analyse references based on proper names, parodies and characters borrowed from the Russian literature.
The most representative writers and poets are studied throughout the article in order to understand better the novel. Referencias a la literatura rusa El texto alude a unos treinta escritores. En primer lugar, analizaremos las referencias de la novela al poeta Pushkin. La novela representa el reconocimiento de la grandeza del poeta. El nombre del poeta se menciona 48 veces en la novela.
Las referencias directas cumplen varias funciones. Por un lado, Pushkin es uno de los objetos principales del pensamiento de algunos personajes de The Gift. Por ejemplo, se comparan matices del ritmo de Pushkin y Nekrasov: Para Nabokov, Pushkin representa el comienzo de toda la literatura rusa. El protagonista cita a menudo las obras de su predecesor. Las citas se presentan en dos formas: He had only just got to the words: Las citas inexactas se emplean para caracterizar a los personajes.
Por ejemplo, la cita del redactor Vasiliev: En primer lugar, el pasaje alude a Eugene Onegin: With soul full of regrets, And leaning on the granite, Eugene stood pensive — As his own self the Poet has described. Por ejemplo, Bux distingue al ingeniero Kern y al abogado Charsky Eshafot El apellido del The Grove.
El segundo pertenece al padrastro de Zina. Asimismo encontramos algunos personajes de Pushkin que cobran vida en The Gift. La pareja formada por el poeta y el improvisador de Noches egipcias aparece en la novela con diferentes variaciones. Una de ellas es el poeta Fyodor y el escritor Busch. Encontramos el triangulo amoroso de Eugene Onegin: Pushkin es la clave en la novela. Hay cinco menciones directas al poeta. Tamara, seducida por el demonio Lermontov y Kostomarov seducido por el tercer departamento, delata a Chernyshevski.
El poeta Nekrasov aparece como uno de los personajes secundarios en la novela. Una de ellas la encontramos en este pasaje: Otro poeta ruso que menciona la novela es Fet. Whispers, timid respiration, trill of nightingale. Written by a certain Fet, a well-known poet in his time. An idiot with few peers. El mismo Nabokov reconoce que Blok es The Grove. She always unexpectedly appeared out of the darkness, like a shadow leaving its kindred element.
This kind of blank verse Blok dedicated to Georgi Chulkov. Nabokov a menudo emplea la paleta de Blok: Aparte de las referencias a los poetas rusos, la novela alude a los escritores prosaicos. Para crear este tipo de prosa Fyodor consulta la experiencia de sus predecesores, entre ellos, de Bely. Encontramos uno de los ejemplos en la escena cuando Fyodor piensa en su futuro libro, al principio de la novela: Gogol aparece como maestro de la prosa rusa en The Gift. Both feature freakish and morally repugnant characters, often bearing odd names, oftener still The Grove.
Esto confunde al lector. Nabokov a menudo describe a Chernyshevski como un diablo. Pocas cosas aprecia de Dostoievski: But pastry shops seduced him not at all with their victuals… newspapers, gentlemen, newspapers, that is what they seduced him with! The growing and quivering of Bazarov? His highly unconvincing fussing with those frogs? Recordemos que en la novela Anna Karenin, antes de suicidarse, Anna lee un libro. A diferencia del libro de Tolstoi, que permite mirar la vida pasada, el libro de Nabokov le permite mirar hacia delante. Como ejemplo encontramos tomos de Annensky y de Jodasevich que son mencionados en el momento de la muerte de Yasha.
En otros casos encontramos referencias a Gumilev en la novela. No olvidemos que, aparte de un Koncheyev real —que no tiene nada que ver con el poeta Sirin— hay otro Koncheyev, creado por la mente de Fyodor.

Aribau i la Catalunya del seu temps. Revue Hispanique LXV Bergnes de las Casas, helenista y editor After a contextualisation of the writer and her age, I will examine the target text taking into account the concept of literary polysystem and its diverse elements according to Itamar Even- Zohar.
The aim is to describe how Burney was presented in continental reviews. As the daughter of the famous musicologist Dr. Charles Burney, Frances had contact with artists and the higher classes since she was a girl. Samuel Johnson, the dramatists Richard B. The family left Britain for France, where the writer lived for thirteen years before she published her last novel, The Wanderer , in England.
For our translemic analysis, we will bear in mind two aspects: We adopt this approach since it privileges the complexity of the text and its elements —institution, repertoire, producer, consumer, market and product— as it is explained by Itamar Even-Zohar , and it can be applied to translation. Therefore, we will contextualise the author of the text, the translators, and the publication where the target text appeared.
We will also take into account the most remarkable features of the later and the kind of readers or public that translators had in mind. Crewe and The Grove. Locke, as Edward A. Bloom and Lillian A. The manuscript was sold to Payne, Cadell and Davies for 1, pounds Burney, Camilla xvii- xix , and critical reactions were very varied Burney, Camilla xix-xx. There is a good deal of intrigue and romanticism, and special attention is paid to family matters. The First Translation of Frances and narcissism, and she has the faults traditionally attributed to cultivated women As we will see, the Genevan text presents a quite different Camilla to its readers.
As for the continent, Britain was praised as a model after the development and technological changes introduced by the Industrial Revolution, which brought so much prosperity to the nation. The British Empire was consolidated, and, for the French, it was the most powerful rival. In the literary realm, book production raised paralleling the power of the avid middle class which demanded more and more literary products on the market. Critics and BB are included in what Even-Zohar calls institution, which governs the production and consumption of literary products and is composed of the aggregate factors involved with the maintenance of literature as a socio-cultural activity From the sociolinguistic point of view, the translation of an English work into French meant the insertion of that work in a higher culture.
The Pictets chose French for their translation due to its international status. The publication wanted to promote the knowledge of the British Isles on the continent, so the part relative to science was the responsibility of Marc-Auguste Pictet and Charles Pictet dealt with agriculture and literature. He also translated, compiled and adapted the texts. The Pictets were interested in all sort of British material, but BB wanted to serve the Republic of Geneva and to strengthen the contacts with the French Empire in particular.
They had, of course, an economic aim in mind and cultivated different domains to attract as many readers as possible. The Pictets also recommended certain readings and presented themselves as the moral guardians of their readers. They embraced liberalism and the existing social order, and it is not strange to perceive a certain antifeminist tone in articles and translations. In general, they offered free translations, sometimes not very accurate but acceptable, with omissions, syntactic adaptations and the neutralisation of political connotations.
The stylistic divergence was greatly taken into account Bickerton, Marc- Auguste since the English used long sentences, metaphors, and long adjectival phrases, which puzzled the French. The First Translation of Frances As for the readers or consumers of the literary product, the Pictets knew very well the subjects that they had to avoid: Pictet 14 This attitude does not surprise, bearing in mind that subscriptions came from Germany, Russia, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. Marc- Auguste had contact with eminent people: Cassaigneau, and Rilliet Though Devonshire explains that Burney was not much read by the French because she was considered a moral and puritanical writer like Richardson 97 , the reception of her work in her adopted country was rather positive.
By , both Evelina and Cecilia had been translated into French: Renfner in and Cecilia by H. Rieu in Devonshire Some anonymous novels were associated with Burney, who even had a competitor at home since the works of her half-sister Sarah Harriet Burney were also successful in France and would be translated there some years later: Desprez and Deschamps Devonshire For the Pictets, many characters in Camilla are admirably portrayed: After offering a long summary of the plot Burney, Camilla. The First Translation of Frances Camilla.
The brilliant opening about human nature and the novelist as the one who tries to study it is not altered in French: In our neighbours we cannot judge, in ourselves we dare not trust it. We lose ere we learn to appreciate, and ere we can comprehend it we must be born again. It lives its own surprise —it ceases to beat— and the void is inscrutable! In one grand and general vie, who can display such a portrait? Fairly, however faintly, to delineate some of its features, is the sole and discriminate province of the pen which would trace nature, yet blot out our personality.
Composed and strengthened by religious duties, he then desired to see Eugenia and Indiana, that he might give them his last exhortation and counsel, in case of a speedy end. The First Translation of Frances Mr. Tyrold would fain have spared him this touching exertion, but he declared he could not go off with a clear conscience, unless he told them the advice which he had been thinking of for them, between whiles during his illness. However, Eugenia is not a favourite character in the target text: Tyrol, Camilla and Eugenia when they visit the idiot girl and the children praise them as their benefactors Burney, Camilla This incident and Mr.
The means, my dear Eugenia, are not beneath the objects: In the lowest life, equally with the highest, wherever nature has been kind, sympathy springs spontaneously for whatever is unfortunate, and respect for whatever seems innocent. She regrets having spent her childhood surrounded by books and not in contact with the world. Eugenia blames the Tyrolds for having concealed her deformity, and she envies Indiana Burney, Camilla The Pictets retain the conversation Burney, Camilla. As we can see, the French-speaking readers could not fully appreciate the novel because many characters and adventures disappear in the translation.
Idiolects are rendered as standard French in the target text, which is related to the repertoire or the rules and material that govern the use and making of the literary product Even-Zohar The improvement of the youth is a prevailing theme in the novel.
