Steiner cites many texts in French German Latin and Italian but does not always translate these citations He does however reiterate the salient points of the uotation so that it is possible to follow his argument without full translationChapter 1 Steiner asserts that even with speakers of the same language every act of reading or listening to a verbal message involves translation at some level the meanings and connotations of words change with time and across social milieus even from individual to individualChapter 2 Steiner considers the vast number of languages inexplicable their multiplicity confers no evident benefit and causes definite perils to survival by making cooperation difficult or impossible He reflects on the myth of Babel which asserts the existence of an Ur Sprache a universal primal language spoken and understood by God and all humankind He looks at this myth as interpreted by three modern Cabalists Walter Benjamin Kafka and Borges Appropriately for the book s subject matter the Borges uotes contrast two different English translations He examines the two schools of thought about the multiplicity of languages the monadist view which asserts that each language expresses and imposes a uniue worldview accessible only to speakers of that language and the universalist which asserts some underlying unity in all languages While the universalist camp seems to hold the most hope for a science of translation the general rules they propound founder on counterexamples from various languages Chomsky s linguistic universals operate at a level too inaccessible to consciousness to be of use to a study of translationChapter 3 Steiner claims three languages French English and German as his native tongue It is only through language with its past and future tenses that we have access to the past or can project ideas into the future Steiner reviews the idea of whether a private language is possible considering the difficult poetry and prose that arose starting toward the end of the 19th century nonsense verse Dada Attempts at creating a universal language concentrate on public use of language communication with others Linguistic science concerns itself with truth and falsity but Steiner thinks the primary evolutionary benefit of language is in its ability to embody that which does not exist either now as lies or fiction or in the future Language is the main instrument of man s refusal to accept the world as it is He suggests the origin of a multiplicity of languages arises from a need to communicate with one s family or tribe while remaining opaue and deceptive with outsidersChapter 4 Theories of translation fail to have any true utility lacking a theory of language Generalizations about translations are tripartite literal word for word translations paraphrases or adaptations or the conveying of the meaning of the original reformulated in idiomatic form in the target language The last involves not a literal translation but conveys in the target language the sense of the words that a native speaker of the source language would instinctively understand Conjectures about the way in which languages occupy up physical space in the brain reflections on instinctive use of analogies of storage and retrieval spatial relationships when speaking about the use of languageChapter 5 The workshop section Steiner presents a four part hermeneutic of translation trust the translator trusts that the foreign text has meaning penetration the meaning of the text is extracted from within embodiment the text is rendered into the target language and restitution the target language is enriched with a new text the source work gains prestige and a larger audience The appeal of literal translations Browning s Aeschylus and H lderin s Sophocles A paradox the sound and style of translations from an exotic language Chinese Arabic are intuitive and recognizable than those from geographically or culturally close languages He critiues examples of Shakespeare into French prose Madame Bovary into English Shakespeare sonnets into German Does the fact that there s no French Shakespeare allow for the existence of Proust A translation of Ovid into Italian is presented as an example of translation of closely related languages He gives examples of failed translations betraying the original by either diminishing or elevating it Two examples of almost perfect translation are givenChapter 6 Steiner considers the setting of a text to music a type of translation discusses settings of Goethe s Es war ein Konig im Thule Culture is a series of translations transformations substitutions permutations interanimations of basic concepts and situations Steiner looks at three speeches describing the death of Hippolytus Euripides Seneca and Racine and how each depends on its predecessors he also examines poems expressing similar ideas over several centuries and the effect of Rousseau s Le Nouvelle H lo se on European sensibility particularly subseuent French novels by Sainte Beuve Balzac and Flaubert Finally he considers the advantages for and threats to English as it becomes an international lingua franca Bali
