A little while back, after a 40-year career in publishing, I sat down to enjoy reading my favorite French classics, but this time in English. I was amazed and very displeased to find that even the most expensive editions offered less than totally accurate translation of the works; not to mention many translator's mania to go off on their own tangent, adding new words—or phrases—to the author's... read more

I was amazed to discover inaccurate translation and other oversights such as new words or new phrases tacked on to the original text. Let us be clear, the classics are such because the authors were brilliant writers who took great care in choosing accurate words; Voltaire, H... read more

In 2017 I had the great opportunity of illustrating a philosophical commentary on Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen by the Irish writer George Bernard Shaw: The Perfect Wagnerite: A Commentary on the Niblung's Ring (originally published in London, 1898). Shaw offered it to those enthusiastic admirers of Wagner who "were unable to follow his ideas, and did not in the least understand the... read more

Avec Les Aventures de Tom Sawyer —et surtout avec les Aventures de Huck Finn— Marc Twain utilise un certain nombre de dialectes: le dialecte nègre du Missouri; la forme la plus extrême du dialecte sud-ouest, du Backwoods américain; le dialecte ordinaire Pike County, et quatre variétés modifiées de ce dernier. Le but principal de Marc Twain était de représenter la langue parlée et non pas la la... read more
