    Change in the Play Translations Introduction ============ From the statement above I am going to consider the way in which Friel introduces changes that occur in Act1.

    According to Seamus Deane, Translations is a play about the tragedy of English Imperialism. How far would you agree with this statement in relation to both Translations and Heart of Darkness? INTRO Although the location, language and structure of Brian Friel's Translations differs unmistakably from that of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, the topic of colonisation remains central to both.

What about the choices of a literature professor, in the year 1925, when teaching this play? The tone and speech of these translations can be very different, yet mean the same thing. Lysistrata has been altered throughout

    Translation Analysis Since there is no a definitive translation of any text, multiple translations can allow us to conceive the original text (even though we don’t know the language of the source text). "The study of multiple translations substantially enlarges the interpretive process and perspectives that readers draw from the text" (Schulte 1994). In other words, comparing various translations of the same text as in (Charles Baudelaire Correspondence, A Multiple Reading of Rainer Maria Rilke

    unknown author between the centuries of 800 AD and 1000 AD. Year after year, a new translation is made by an author. Each translation is completely different, yet still the same poem. It is tedious for authors to make their translation literal to the original epic, while simultaneously making it understandable, modern, and readable.
