Daniel Hahn: The Translator’s Craft and Graft

Thanks to tireless advocates like Daniel Hahn, literary translation has begun to enjoy a higher profile. Now, Hahn shines a new light on the process in Catching Fire – a diary of his work reimagining Diamela Eltit’s Spanish-language novel Never Did the Fire. Today, Hahn shares with Jenny Niven the pleasures of recasting literature into another language and the challenges of conveying humour, subtlety and staying true to the original.
