About the Book Like criticism, translation is always a text about a text and hence it is a metatext. We translate by intuition. There is no ‘science of translating’ though there are scientific theories of translation. In this revised and enlarged edition of A Handbook of Translation Studies, a thorough analysis of various aspects of translation studies—both in the East and the West has been made. Apart from making a background study of translation, the art of translation has been analysed as creative writing, as linguistic bridge-building and as nation building. A chapter each has been devoted to the important aspects of translation, like theory and practice of translation: the Indian context; comparative literature and translation studies: a correlation; the role of the translator; translation theories, and above all, the place of translation in the twenty-first century in the global context. This is an incisive and well researched book on translation studies in our country. In this revised and enlarged edition, a new chapter entitled “Translator’s Dilemma: Agony or Ecstasy” has been added, while the importance of translation has been emphasized in “Translate or Perish”. The Bibliography has also been updated. The book will be useful for those concerned with translation studies in India. Printed Pages: 200
