“Traduire, c’est parfois refaire un texte avec le sentiment de ne plus savoir écrire” Apr 10, 2009

Comment définir le traducteur ? On dit parfois qu'il est un « passeur », mais, dans votre dernier livre, Le Clavier cannibale, vous semblez préférer le terme de « faussaire » ?

Entretien: Claro, traducteur, (Propos recueillis par Gilles Heuré, Télérama n° 3090)

“Traduire, c’est parfois refaire un texte avec le sentiment de ne plus savoir écrire”
_____________________________________________________

"It has nothing to do with bilingualism. As I already said, all the great books are written in a foreign language. So it’s not really about learning English, it’s more like learning Pynchonian, Vollmannian, etc. A very complex work is like a world in itself. You have to inhabit it, and you know you can do it because you have always wanted to breathe such an atmosphere. It’s exhilarating, not frightening. And the complexity guarantees the pleasure." – Claro

The Christophe Claro Interview, Interview by François Monti

This is much like the Télérama interview I quoted, earlier; except that it is conducted in English. EAL
