What People are Saying About This

Douglas Robinson

An astonishing and explosive tour de force. (Douglas Robinson, author of What Is Translation?)

Edith Grossman

What she [Levine] has to say about the linguistic, personal, scholarly, and imaginative elements that the translator must bring to that process is an invaluable contribution to our understanding of translation in particular and creativity in general . . . An important and original book. (Edith Grossman, translator of Love in the Time of Cholera)

Susan Sontag

A continually lively and very generous book, full of lore and such a vivid and just account of how complex a process good writing is.
