Contents:
The translator as double agent -- Immaculate translation : sexual fidelity, textual transmission, and the virgin birth -- "The beauty of Greece in the tents of Shem" : Aquila between the camps -- False friends : conversion and translation from Jerome to Luther -- A translator culture -- The Holocaust in every tongue -- Translation and assimilation : Singer in America -- Endecktes Judenthum? : a translator's note.
Summary: Faithful Renderings reads translation history through the lens of Jewish-Christian difference and, conversely, views Jewish-Christian difference as an effect of translation. Subjecting translation to a theological-political analysis, Seidman asks how the charged Jewish-Christian relationship--and more particularly the dependence of Christianity on the texts and translations of a rival religion--has haunted the theory and practice of translation in the West. Bringing together central issues in translation studies with episodes in Jewish-Christian history, Naomi Seidman considers a range of texts.
