Hello! I'm doing a research on Poe's poetry and its translation into Russian. The problem is - I cant find any theory on the translation of poetry. I would greatly appreciate any help or ideas....

Hi Elena,

I did a Google search and found quite a lot of material for your literature review i.e. books, journals, university websites (Department of Translation) etc. You need lots of patience to get exactly what you want. In your case something pertaining to Russian language?

This is just a few that I found. Good luck.

KP

Hi Elena,

I am glad you found the info useful. Usually from one link we can find others that are equally important. Also please check out the databases in university libraries. They too have so much to offer for your research.
