Oxford History of Literary Translation in English by Gordon Braden Oxford History of Literary Translation in English, Hardback (December 2010)

Volume 2 explores the period when a drive, unprecedented in its energy and scope, to bring foreign writing of all kinds into English emerged, and when translation became a key part of the English writer's career. Translation was also fundamental in the evolution of the still unfixed English language and its still unfixed literary styles.
