Oliver Twist malvive en un hospicio donde la escasa comida y los castigos corporales son norma. Empujado por el ambiente, ingresa en una banda de ladronzuelos dirigida por el avaro Fagin. Los bajos fondos de Londres son el escenario de este genial clásico universal creado por Charles Dickens. Directores como David Lean o Roman Polanski realizaron excelentes versiones cinematográficas.

Sus novelas aúnan realismo, humor y un amplio conocimiento de los marginados, cuya situación denunció continuamente

The Reception of Charles Dickens in Europe

The Reception of Charles Dickens in Europe offers a full historical survey of Dickens's reception in all the major European countries and many of the smaller ones, filling a major gap in Dickens scholarship, which has by and large neglected Dickens's fortunes in Europe, and his impact on major European authors and movements. Essays by leading international critics and translators give full attention to cultural changes and fashions, such as the decline of Dickens's fortunes at the end of the nineteenth century in the period of Naturalism and Aestheticism, and the subsequent upswing in the period of Modernism, in part as a consequence of the rise of film in the era of Chaplin and Eisenstein. It will also offer accounts of Dickens's reception in periods of political upheaval and revolution such as during the communist era in Eastern Europe or under fascism in Germany and Italy in particular.

Literary and multimodal texts for children and young people play an important role in their acquisition of language and literacy, and they are a flourishing part of publishing and translating activities today. This book brings together twentyone papers on the particular aspect of the translation of feigned orality. As the link between the literary and the multimodal text, fictional dialogue is the appropriate place for evoking orality, lending authenticity and credibility to the narrated plot and giving a voice to fictitious characters. This is illustrated with examples from narrative and dramatic texts as well as films, cartoons and television series, in their respective modes of mediation: translating, interpreting, dubbing and subtitling. The findings are of interest from the scholarly point of view of contrastive linguistics, for the professional practice of translating, interpreting, dubbing and subtitling and in the educational context. Martin B. Fischer. PhD thesis on translation of children's literature. He is a translator from Catalan, Spanish and Dutch into German and teaches translation and German at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. Maria Wirf Naro. PhD thesis on lexical composition in German. She teaches German language and text analysis at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.

The 700-year history of the novel in English defies straightforward telling. Encompassing a range of genres, it is geographically and culturally boundless and influenced by great novelists working in other languages. Michael Schmidt, choosing as his travel companions not critics or theorists but other novelists, does full justice to its complexity.

George Eliot (born Mary Ann Evans, 1819-1880) was one of the most important writers of the European nineteenth century, as well as a pioneering translator of challenging and controversial Continental thinkers, and an influential editor and essayist. Although such novels of provincial life as Adam Bede, The Mill on the Floss and Middlemarch have seen her characterised as a thoroughly English writer, her reception and immersion in the literary, intellectual and political life of Europe was remarkable. Written by a team of leading international scholars, The Reception of George Eliot in Europe is the first comprehensive and systematic survey of Eliot's place in European culture. Exploring Eliot's deep knowledge of German literature and thought, her galvanizing influence on women novelists and translators in countries as diverse as Sweden and Spain, her travels in Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Lands, Italy, and Spain and her friendship with leading figures such as Mazzini, Turgenev, and Liszt, this study reveals her full stature as a cosmopolitan writer and thinker. A film of her Italian Renaissance novel Romola was one of the first to circulate in Europe. Including an historical timeline and a comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources and translations, The Reception of George Eliot in Europe is an essential reference resource for anyone working in the field of Victorian Literature or the European nineteenth century.

Nelly liebt das Lesen und die Langsamkeit, glaubt an Zeichen und ist unglücklich verliebt. Eines Tages begegnet ihr in einem alten Buch ein rätselhafter Satz – und kurz entschlossen tut sie, was sie nie für möglich gehalten hätte: Sie hebt all ihr Geld ab, kauft sich eine rote Handtasche und verlässt Hals über Kopf Paris, um der Spur des Buches nach Venedig zu folgen. Ihre Reise führt sie tief ins Herz der Lagunenstadt, die nicht nur die Begegnung mit einem charmanten Venezianer für sie bereithält, sondern auch ein zauberhaftes kleines Café, in dem Geheimnisse warten und Wunder möglich sind.
