Abstract:

"In If This Be Treason: Translation and its Dyscontents, Gregory Rabassa offers a defense of translation, laying out his views on the craft. Anecdotal, and illuminating, If This Be Treason traces Rabassa's career, from his boyhood on a New Hampshire farm, his school days "collecting" languages, the two and a half years he spent overseas during WWII, his South American travels, until one day "I signed a contract to do my first translation of a long work [Cortazar's Hopscotch] for a commercial publisher." Additionally, Rabassa offers us his "rap sheet," a consideration of the various authors and the over 40 works he has translated. This long-awaited memoir is a joy to read, an instrumental guide to translating, and a look at the life of one of its great practitioners."--BOOK JACKET.
