Estudos da Tradução, James Joyce


Joyce’s early Italian reception mostly depended on French translations. The French influence was most prominent in the case of Ulysses, for the novel remained untranslated until 1960. Like in the rest of Europe, Auguste Morel’s version became “an authoritative reference on matters of interpretation”,2 occasionally replacing the original when the book was either unavailable or linguistically inaccessible to the translator.
