Interpreting Culture Through Translation is an anthology of articles compiled to honor one of the foremost translators and interpreters of the Chinese classics, Professor D. C. Lau. The articles take as their central theme the project of making culture embedded in one language accessible and understandable to a second. This theme is pursued directly through original renderings of Chinese literary texts into English, as well as through critical reflection on the process and problems of translating Chinese culture both linguistically and conceptually into the English medium, and vice versa. A truly international group of scholars from Asia, Europe and North America who collectively represent many of our most distinguished seats of learning join the discussion from across the disciplines of sinology─from linguistics and philology to literature, anthropology, history, philosophy and religion.
