The study of literary translation indicates the centrality of the author / language / reader triangulation in the process of resemanting the original text in the translation text. But the correlation of linguistic and literary hermeneutics is connected to the critical task of understanding and interpreting the text. The critical interpretation is in fact the fourth factor that determines the translation strategies within a literary system. Special relevance will be given to the problems of translation of the poetic text, due to the theoretical depth and the historical interest they constitute.
Appropriate secondary reading in english may be suggested during the course.
