Feminist theory has been widely translated, influencing the humanities and social sciences in many languages and cultures. However, these theories have not made as much of an impact on the discipline that made their dissemination possible: many translators and translation scholars still remain unaware of the practices, purposes and possibilities of gender in translation. Translating Women revives the exploration of gender in translation begun in the 1990s by Susanne de Lotbini re-HarwoodOCOs "Re-belle et infid le/The Body Bilingual" (1992), Sherry SimonOCOs "Gender in Translation" (1996), and Luise von FlotowOCOs "Translation and Gender" (1997). "Translating Women" complements those seminal texts by providing a wide variety of examples of how feminist theory can inform the study and practice of translation. Looking at such diverse topics as North American chick lit and medieval Arabic, Translating Women explores women in translation in many contexts, whether they are women translators, women authors, or women characters. Together the contributors show that feminist theory can apply to translation in many new and unexplored ways and that it deserves the full attention of the discipline that helped it become internationally influential.

This study considers the ways Spanish American and Brazilian poets differ from their European counterparts by considering 'Latin American' as more than a perfunctory epithet. It sets the orthodox Latin tradition of the subcontinent against others that have survived or grown up after the conquest then pays attention to those poets who, from Independence, have striven to express a specifically American moral and geographical identity. Dr Brotherson focuses on Modernismo, or the 'coming of age' of poetry in Spanish America and Brazil, and the importance of the movements associated with it. He considers César Vallejo and Pablo Neruda, probably the greatest of the selection, Octavio Paz, and modern poets who have reacted differently to the idea that Latin America might now be thought to have not just a geographical but a nascent political identity of its own. Poems are liberally quoted, and treated as entities in their own right.

„Ängstlich in das Dunkel starrend blieb ich stehn, verwundert, harrend ...“ „Der Rabe“ brachte Edgar Allan Poe den Durchbruch als Lyriker. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht zählt bis heute zum unvergänglichen Erbe der Dichtkunst. In 108 Versen schildert er den mitternächtlichen Besuch eines Raben bei einem Verzweifelten, dessen Geliebte Lenore starb. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Elise von Hohenhausen findet sich hier neu interpretiert und illustriert von Marta Monika Czerwinski. Der Name steht für schaurige und düstere Abgründe: Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Wegbereiter des Symbolismus und Meister des subtilen Horrors. Poes Gedichte, Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten zählen zu den großen Werken seiner Zeit.
