New publication: Translation and Paratexts

By Kathryn Batchelor

As the "thresholds" through which readers and viewers access texts, paratexts have already sparked important scholarship in literary theory, digital studies and media studies. Translation and Paratexts explores the relevance of paratexts for translation studies and provides a framework for further research. Written in three parts, Kathryn Batchelor firstly offers a critical overview of recent scholarship, and then in the second part introduces three original case studies to demonstrate the importance of paratextual theory. Batchelor interrogates English versions of Nietzsche, Chinese editions of Western translation theory, and examples of subtitled drama in the UK, beforeconcluding with a final part outlining the theory of paratextuality for translation research, addressing questions of terminology and methodology. Translation and Paratexts is essential reading for students and researchers in Translation Studies, Interpreting studies and Literary Translation.
