Abstract:

This article is based on a web survey of on-line and print translations into English of poetry by writers from Bosnia since the 1992-1995 war. Combining insights from Actor Network Theory, Activity Theory and Goffman's Social Game Theory, it examines the relationships between human and textual agents in the production of poetry translations. It maps these relationships onto agents' geographic 'positionality'. Among the findings are:(1) Poetry translation is produced by networks of agents working across a 'distributed' space. This implies that it is simplistic to conceptualise literary translat.
