The argumentative approach to the e-book is metaphorical. every one bankruptcy explores the influence at the conception and perform of the poet at factor of a metaphor or team of metaphors generally present in modern translation discourse: specifically, figurations of the translator as an exile, as a baby, as a code-breaker, and as a slave; and comparisons of translation to friendship, sexual congress, metamorphosis and exchange. the vast majority of those metaphors have been completely or in all likelihood pejorative: translation remained a arguable perform all through this era, greatly depreciated and stigmatized.

Turning translator consequently compelled the 5 significant poets thought of in Translation and the Poet's Life to adopt strenuous efforts of self-inquiry and self-presentation; to discover new solutions to questions quintessential to their understandings of themselves and their status of their tradition: questions on vocation and occupation, status and happiness, accountability and freedom. Translation and the Poet's lifestyles tells the tales of those own and public remakings.
