Translated and launched in Turkey

October 3, 2017

Delighted that Edgar Allan Poe and the London Monster has now been published in Turkey by Paris Yayincik.  Again, a very different cover design, which I find fascinating. I like that Poe looks pensive or anxious rather than angst-ridden as he does in many images of him; this expression  fits his demeanor in the novel.

 

Translating a novel from one language to another takes such skill and artistry.  It's not just a question of plugging in text bit by bit into google-translate or similar (though these seem to be improving), the translator has to pick up on the nuances of the text and find similar words in another language; she or he must also capture  the tone and musicality. With the dialogue, each individual voice must also be translated in such a way to give the most accurate sense of the character.  Quite a skill.
