3 November 2009 A debate on translation in Massolit Books

On the second day of the Festival, Massolit Books welcomed the editors and contributors of Literatura na Świecie (World Literature) – one of the most renowned Polish periodicals devoted to literary translations. In Massolit’s new hall, which was filled to the brim, Małgorzata Łukasiewicz, Anna Górecka, Jacek Gutorow, Andrzej Sosnowski and Marcin Szuster talked about the influence of certain translations on Polish literature and culture as well as about some foreign writers’ popularity in Poland. A lot of attention in the discussion was also given to issues connected with translation theory.
