    Edith Grossman, the 'Glenn Gould of translators,' argues for the cultural importance of translation and for a more encompassing and nuanced appreciation of the translator's role. Her belief in the crucial significance of the translator's work, as well as her rare ability to explain the intelle3ctual sphere that she inhabits as interpreter of the original text, inspires and provokes engagement with translation - and by definition, world literature - in an entirely new way. A Personal List of Important Translations, Works Cited, Index. 135p.
