Translation : This course will expose students to the translations of major literary works written in the English language. The methodology involves a diachronic and synchronic analysis on a comparative basis. Students will be able to study the stylistic characteristics of great translators who have successfully transmitted the cultural background and stylistic characteristics of great authors, and who in that process have created "new" classics in their own right, which in turn have made a significant contribution to French culture and civilization. / Ce cours permet aux étudiants d'aborder l'étude des traductions de grandes oeuvres de la littérature anglaise.
