The first book I read by Coetzee was "Foe", and right from its cover I couldn't keep wondering how I would translate the title into Spanish,if I decided to translate it. Translation loss would be great and unavoidable in these three letters, one word and a(?) meaning, and --what's most important-- part of a famous surname (Defoe). As far as I know, it hasn't been translated yet into Spanish. What's interesting is that great (modern) authors of fiction pose problems to translators that used to be encountered mostly when translating poetry.
