To Say Almost the Same Thing. Experiments on Translation

The brilliant Italian philosopher, semiotician and cultural critic Umberto Eco reflects on the compromise nature of translation

After giving a series of lectures on translation, Umberto Eco further developed his notes in a monograph respectable for its originality. In it, Eco's broad-spectrum academic culture as a philosopher and semiotician is combined with the dialogic tone of the university lecturer and the attractiveness of the famous writer. Countless concrete examples from his own works alternate with cases from world literature, comparisons between small and large languages, dialogues of high and mass culture, comments on cinematic, musical and pictorial interpretations.

The result is a remarkable work that examines the finest details of the translation process to present it in its three faces, which anyone tempted by translation work knows well: as a science, as an art and as a passion.

About the Author
Umberto  Eco

Umberto Eco was an Italian writer of fiction, essays, academic texts, and children's books, and certainly one of the finest authors of the twentieth century.

A professor of semiotics at the University of Bologna, Eco’s brilliant fiction is known for its playful use of language and symbols, its astonishing array of allusions and references, and clever use of puzzles and narrative inventions. His perceptive essays on modern culture are filled with a delightful sense of humor and irony, and his ideas on semiotics, interpretation, and aesthetics have established his reputation as one of academia’s foremost thinkers.
