Όταν ο μεταφραστής μιλά για τη μετάφραση

ΟΙ ΣΥΓΓΡΑΦΕΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΟΙ ΜΕΤΑΦΡΑΣΤΕΣ ΤΟΥΣ Είναι κοινός τόπος ότι ο μεταφραστής είναι ο καλύτερος αναγνώστης ενός έργου. Ο πιο προσεκτικός, αυτός που διερμηνεύει το κείμενο και τη συγγραφική πρόθεση (αν αυτή μπορεί και πρέπει να διερμηνευτεί), αυτός που εντάσσει όσο το δυνατόν καλύτερα το κείμενο στα φυσικά του συμφραζόμενα, προκειμένου να το αποσπάσει εν…
