Example text

45 Hence readers of books are relating to and imagining the persons who have written the books. A reading experience always involves the reader’s creative imagination, which is not just an innate capability but a complex psychological action, part of the individual’s whole development, and closely connected to the surroundings. Many scholars, like David Bleich, stress the importance of childhood experiences in the development of the imagination. The relationship between the child and the mother is vital, as the child approaches language through the mother: In life, every individual speaks the “mother tongue,” which is an idiomatic reflection to the fact that the overwhelming majority of human beings are brought into language .

They find the roots of these attitudes in René Descartes’s “philosophy of dualism”: “Reason is what makes the human into a higher creature. ”54 We have also been conditioned to the idea that involvement while reading is not always recommended, especially for reviewers or translators. We should not reveal our individuality but disguise it behind objectivity. Yet involvement in reading is important and natural for both children and adults. If we think of the development of the child, involvement—enjoyment, pleasure—while reading is the basis for an enduring reading habit.

TRANSACTION AND DIALOGUE Language is never neutral. A voice comes through a body which is situated in time and space. The subject is always speaking from a place. The “I’s” point of view is critical when translating. —SUSANNE DE LOTBINIÈRE-HARWOOD, THE BODY BILINGUAL. TRANSLATION AS A REWRITING IN THE FEMININE 26 Translating for Children Translators of children’s literature are readers who bring dimensions from childhood to their reading experiences. Although usually adults, they do not just translate as adults.
