Texte intégral

1This study is a groundbreaking analysis of the field of literary translation in Iran from the end of the 19th century until today. Based on a Bourdieusian sociology of culture, it analyses how translation processes work and how translation is practiced, from the selection of texts to the translation process. It focuses on novels from English. As it is based on a PhD thesis, the first two chapters are devoted to methodological and historical issues. From chapter 3, the author studies translation during different periods: the Qajar; the Pahlavi; and after the 1979 Revolution. The author wanted to offer a comprehensive view of the field and therefore, in some places, the analysis could have been more developed, but the mixture of textual analyses, interviews with agents of translation (translators, publishers, editors), and case studies of cultural institutions makes it an essential resource for anyone interested in modern and contemporary Iranian literature, because of the central role that translated texts play in the Iranian literary field.
