Letters on Liberty: Translation as Liberation
Vanessa Pupavac argues that translation is the truest form of altruism – it is a process through which we express our human sociability across language borders. Finding creativity in the difficulties of communication across language and time barriers, she argues that the layers of meaning provided by different types of translation give freedom and life to a work. She challenges us to take up the liberty of translating or retranslating against our habitual language limits and enhance our liberty of expression.
