This guide highlights the place of translation in our culture, encouraging awareness of the process of translating and the choices involved, making the translator more 'visible'. Concentrating on major writers and works, it covers translations out of many languages, from Greek to Hungarian, Korean to Turkish. For some works (e.g. Virgil's Aeneid) which have been much translated, the discussion is historical and critical, showing how translation has evolved over the centuries and bringing out the differences between versions. Elsewhere, with less familiar literatures, the Guide examines the extent to which translation has done justice to the range of work available.

Bulgarian Literature as World Literature examines key aspects and manifestations of 20th- and 21st-century Bulgarian literature by way of the global literary landscape. The first volume to bring together in English the perspectives of prominent writers, translators, and scholars of Bulgarian literature and culture, this long-overdue collection identifies correlations between national and world aesthetic ideologies and literary traditions. It situates Bulgarian literature within an array of contexts and foregrounds a complex interplay of changing internal and external forces. These forces shaped not only the first collaborative efforts at the turn of the 20th century to insert Bulgarian literature into the world's literary repository but also the work of contemporary Bulgarian diaspora authors. Mapping histories, geographies, economies, and genetics, the contributors assess the magnitudes and directions of such forces in order to articulate how a distinctly national, "minor" literature--produced for internal use and nearly invisible globally until the last decade--transforms into world literature today.

Pale and Other Postmodern Bulgarian Stories is profoundly moving, revealing with fine touches the sentiments and impressions which are a priori little palpable: the flow of time and its influence on strong and rough characters; sex, lies, loss of illusions; the transmission of essential values from generation to generation, disloyalty both to one's country and to one's family; love of mother for son, sacrifice; betrayal as opposed to unity and love in the family and community; loyalty to a cause forcing man to live on and survive despite vicissitudes of life; the supreme mystery of death and the strength to go on living being human in spite of evil. Above all the book is all pervasive, showing the power of music. A bitter-sweet book, terribly funny at places and deeply sad at others. Two of the shorts stories have attracted the attention of the film makers in Bulgaria, "Blood of a Mole" and "Vassil," and another story, "The Twins," has been transformed into a successful theatrical piece.
