The 50 outstanding literary translations from the last 50 years

The Translators Association of the Society of Authors celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion they have compiled a list of 50 outstanding translations of the last half century.

If someone does a better translation of River of Fire (sorry Annie Apa) it could have made a list of the top 50

Look at # 50. Leo Tolstoy – War and Peace (Richard Pevear, Larissa Volokhonsky, 2007) Buy the book

and # 35. Naguib Mahfouz – Cairo Trilogy (Olive E. Kenny, Lorne M. Kenny, Angela Botros Samaan, 1991-3) Buy the book

For the rest click on the heading.
