#BLF2019# TRANSLATING CHINA’S THOMAS HARDY: JIA PINGWA

TRANSLATING CHINA’S THOMAS HARDY: JIA PINGWA
Nicky Harmen, Dylan Levi King, Dave Haysom

Thursday, March 28, 8:00 PM
60 RMB | BW 28-1 | The Bookworm – TICKETS

Jia Pingwa’s novels are immense, sprawling, and highly readable sagas on the human condition. They are also full of Shaanxi dialect and obscure cultural references. How, as the translator, do you bring these great novels to a western readership? Nicky Harman and Dylan Levi King talk about Jia Pingwa and his work, and take a look at the challenges and rewards of translating him. Moderated by Dave Haysom.
