The work presents a great writer suffering writer's block who visits Venice and is liberated, uplifted, and then increasingly obsessed, by the sight of a stunningly beautiful youth. Though he never speaks to the boy, much less touches him, the writer finds himself drawn deep into ruinous inward passion; meanwhile, Venice, and finally, the writer himself, succumb to a cholera plague. The novella is powerfully intertextual, with the chief sources being first the connection of erotic love to philosophical wisdom traced in Plato's Symposium and Phaedrus, and second the Nietzschean contrast between the god of restraint and shaping form, Apollo, and the god of excess and passion, Dionysus.

Moira wrote: And all those long philosophical conversations with dozens and dozens Oh well I know there's a great introduction which I want to read before the book. Hmmm, I'm just now reading Sue's post regarding no notes in the Everyman edition. Do any of the other translations have them?

It is the Woods translation, right?

I haven't downloaded it, just found the site. I'm saving this Teresa. I will deal with all the conversions I have to do for epub later. I already have the hardcover anyway and enjoyed that for Buddenbrooks.

Thank you Teresa This is great for traveling, to have the eformat as well no ribbon, but less weight.

I'll probably use it too at times, like for reading in bed. I'm reading a page leather hardcover right now and it's killing my hands at night.

Eventually I'll do it. I just downloaded this, and while the cover indicates that is is the Woods translation, it is in fact the Lowe-Porter version in the text.

It is very confusing, but I checked it against my paperback copy and it is entirely different. I'm completely ignorant when it comes to theories behind what makes for a good transaltion vs a bad translation.

Why does her translation seem to be held in such low regard? Is she mistranslating?

Is she "breaking the rules" of translating texts? Ultimately, I would like to read the Woods translation and do a compare and contrast, but that is not going to happen anytime soon.

Aug 02, I haven't got the Lowe-Porter translation at hand. In his translation, does Lowe-Porter maintain the same sentence structure as our grand-master of the subordinate clause?

Perhaps no book more so than the Bible is fertile ground for discussions on the value, pros, cons, strengths, limitations of various translations.

But one of the legendary battles was between Nabokov, translator of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin and critic Wilson, who, among other things, accused Nabokov of using arcane English in his attempt to render precise meaning in translation and in the process missing more vital aspects of the original.

NYT did a series of articles in recent years on new translations of Tolstoy's novels, where a man and wife team describe their strategies and what they were trying to accomplish. If you don't get bored by the arcane, you are on an interesting journey that may never end.

I'll listen to the music while I read! Aug 12, Aug 13, Here is an interesting article about Helen Lowe-Porter's translation. John E. Woods doesn't get off scot-free either, though. Buck has some complaints about Woods' ability to translate Mann adequately, and lists some examples of his mistakes.

Yeah, OK, whatever, but Woods' errors, of which there are only a few cited, are certainly less egregious than Lowe-Porter's. Buck seems to have no problem whatsoever with Luke's translations.
