Abstract:

The Endo-Owen collection consists of letters and manuscripts related to the English translation of two works by the Japanese Catholic author Shusaku Endo and their publication in Great Britain by Peter Owen Ltd. The first series, covering the novel The samurai, contains extensive correspondence between the translator Van Gessel and his editor Dan Franklin, as well as a few letters to and from publisher Peter Owen, and one carbon of a letter to Endo. Most of the letters contain lists of possible changes to the translation, as well as discussions of the difficulties of translation in general, and mentions of specific problems of expression. The second eeries comprises materials on the short story collection Stained glass elegies. Two letters from Gessel to Antonia Owen exhaust the correspondence, while typescripts of each stage of preparation, from the first drafts of the translations to the printer's proofs, complete the collection. The Endo-Owen papers complement the library's other important Endo holdings: the autograph manuscript and various drafts of Scandal (gift of Mr. Endo) and the original manuscript of The samurai (1980).
