Cultural barriers in artistic translation

Bariery kulturowe w przekładzie artystycznym. Issue: 3(1)/2012. Ed. Bożena Tokarz. Katowice, Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Śląskiego, 2012, 280 p. The title of the third volume of the serial publication “Translations of Slavic literatures” („Przekłady Literatur Słowiańskich”) should be understood as practices and cultural habits, more or less fixed in texts that make it difficult to re-express the source text, and ipso facto, the secondary reader’s comprehension of otherness and strangeness. This situation gives rise to problems related to translation and the theory of translation. They are discussed in the volume by particular authors.
