Theories of Nonsense
Reading this translation thread at LanguageHat‘s, I asked myself: Why is that theories of translations have multiplied in the past, say, four decades, but good translations (of Russian authors into English and vice versa) have not?
Also found via comments at LH, Gary Saul Morton’s Absolute Nonsense — an excellent explanation of what is missing from most Gogol translations.
