How dull to have a gun and not shoot. Guns should be fired.

Atwood in Translationland: Margaret Atwood, 2014 Sebald Lecture

The Guardian has this piece on Margaret Atwood's February 18 2014 Sebald Lecture, Atwood in Translationland.

There's also a blurb re said lecture here,on the British Centre for Literary Translation website.

The lecture was recorded and will be available on YouTube at some point.

"...the choices that bedevil the writer bedevil the translator 10 times over. If a writer has a bad day, you can say, 'At least I don't have to do a freaking translation.'"
