About this Journal

Translation and Literature publishes critical studies and reviews primarily on literary translation into English, of all periods. Its scope takes in the reception of ancient Greek and Latin works, the historical and contemporary translation of literary works from modern languages into English, and the far-reaching effects which the practice of translation has, over time, exerted on literature written in English. It embraces imitation and adaptation, including adaptation into other art forms; the theory of literary translation; and publishing history. It also publishes significant historical translations edited from manuscript sources.

A cumulative index of all articles from Volume 1 to the present is available here.
