Nation, Language, and the Ethics of Translation

Nation, Language, and the Ethics of Translation (Translation/Transnation)
Sandra Bermann, Michael | Wood Princeton University Press | English | ISBN: 0691116091 | July 5, 2005 | PDF | 416 pages | 1,8 mb

In recent years, scholarship on translation has moved well beyond the technicalities of converting one language into another and beyond conventional translation theory. With new technologies blurring distinctions between "the original" and its reproductions, and with globalization redefining national and cultural boundaries, "translation" is now emerging as a reformulated subject of lively, interdisciplinary debate. Nation, Language, and the Ethics of Translation enters the heart of this debate. It covers an exceptional range of topics, from simultaneous translation to legal theory, from the language of exile to the language of new nations, from the press to the cinema; and cultures and languages from contemporary Bengal to ancient Japan, from translations of Homer to the work of Don DeLillo.

Nominated for Music Nova Scotia's 2016 Digital Artist of the Year, Makayla Lynn has 4 albums under her belt, including the award winning album "Daydream", followed up by "On a Dare and a Prayer" (yet to be released). Recorded in Nashville, TN and released in June 2014, "Daydream" was nominated for ECMA Country Album of the Year, ECMA Rising Star of the Year, IMEA Country Album of the Year as well as Music Nova Scotia's Country Recording of the Year. A ground breaking project for such a young artist, the album helped pave the way for Makayla Lynn as she ventures into the next steps in what is promising to be a very long career. Several of the songs from "Daydream" have landed Makayla nods in songwriting contests including being named a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting and Unsigned Only Contests, and a regional finalist in CBC's Searchlight Contest. "Daydream" has quickly turned into something unprecedented for such a young East Coast musician and we are confident that "On a Dare and a Prayer" will far surpass the debut.

Celebrating 100 years of a UK National Treasure with brand new orchestral versions of her most beloved songs. A true icon, Vera Lynn reaches her 100th Birthday on the 20th March 2017. To celebrate this milestone, the newly recorded album, Vera 100, features Vera Lynn’s utterly distinctive original vocals set to completely new re-orchestrated versions of her most beloved songs. This technical wizardry has, for the first time, allowed full orchestral accompaniments to transform not only her most memorable and morale-boosting hits that sustained Britons through the wartime years, but some recently unearthed, rare recordings – all presented in sumptuous, up-to-the-minute sound. Vera’s vocal on the lead track, Sailing, has not been heard for 35 years. The album also features several duet partners including Alfie Boe, Alexander Armstrong , Aled Jones and the RAF Squadronaires.

The mere mention of Vera Lynn's name evokes images of London skies filled with a barrage of balloons, and Britons riding out the German blitz in shelters and underground stations. England's sweetheart during the trying times of World War II, Lynn was still in her twenties when she took on that role. She was born Vera Margaret Welch in London's East Ham, to Bertram and Annie Welch, one year before the close of the First World War. She began singing as a girl of seven, also studying dance as a child. She later took her maternal grandmother's maiden name as her stage name, and her natural, unaffected vocal style and charm brought Lynn early success on the radio. At age 18, she was singing with Joe Loss' orchestra, and she'd also begun recording for the Crown label.

Francia/Inghilterra, 1168 - Rapito la notte delle nozze e venduto come schiavo, Hugh di Ryebourne ha finalmente ritrovato la libertà e ora, a dieci anni di distanza, vuole una sola cosa: vendicarsi della moglie Adrienna, che ritiene responsabile della sua cattura. Accecato dall'odio, medita di conquistare il suo cuore e di sedurla, per poi abbandonarla, ed è proprio con tale proposito che si reca a Poitiers, alla corte di Eleonora d'Aquitania, dove la fanciulla si è trasferita. Adrienna, che lo credeva morto da tempo, non può negare a lungo di nutrire un forte desiderio per lui. Ma Hugh non è più il giovane dolce e ingenuo di un tempo: è diventato un uomo duro e tormentato, e molto pericoloso per il suo cuore.

Ms. Gerrie Lynn hailed from Chicago. If the liner notes are to be trusted, Lynn's husband talked her into cutting a demo and sending it to Nashville… And so, here's her record, filled with versions of country hits sung by "girl" singers such as Jody Miller, Patsy Cline and Connie Smith… She may be new on the country scene, but her smooth command of lyrics and melody is professional all the way. Her version of "Stranger" is outstanding, and all of the songs deserve country radio airplay.
