Publication blurb:

For the first time in English, Anthony Cordingley brings together scholars from around the world to focus on self-translation and its practitioners. The self-translator challenges concepts of originality, fidelity and also of invisibility as well as the conventional binary opposition of source and target texts. The essays in this volume draw on a range of disciplines, including Cultural Studies, Sociology, History, Psychoanalysis and Postcolonial Studies, to illuminate a hitherto neglected aspect of Translation Studies.
