Translation Duel

Swedish Fiction

What happens to a story’s essence when it is translated from one language to another? Two acclaimed translators, Nichola Smalley and Saskia Vogel, present their own interpretations of the same text by Swedish novelist Lina Wolff, author of The Polyglot Lovers, who joins them in this event. Together they prove that each translation is a creative work in its own right. No knowledge of Swedish is required to enjoy this event. Hosted by Daniel Hahn.
