La traduction en images et l’image du traducteur à travers les âges
IMAGES OF TRANSLATION AND TRANSLATORS THROUGH HISTORY
Languages of publication
This article analyses the past figure of the translator through metaphorical representations of translation. Indeed, from Ciceron onwards, translation, but also its various manifestations, has beenmore metaphorised than defined or explained. The first part of the analysis deals with positive as well as negative metaphors on translation and the translator, while the second part is more concerned with the metaphors that have been used to characterise, advocate or reject different types of translation.
