Or is our work not always already undercut by uninterrogated categories of authority and canonicity? This approach is also doubly contradictory: And this also why it is difficult to correct translations and maintain monuin coherence. Finally, in relation to these questions of authority and the nature of the texts, on what grounds will we select the texts subject to a feminist transla- tion of the Bible?

Harry Zohn New York: Nevertheless, since Jerome, the maxim non verbum e verbo, sed sensum exprimere de sensu not word for word, but rather to express the sense from the sense [the meaning] has been the order of the day, and has colored many translations. This is why so few translators achieve the tour de force of re-creating a work free of disparity, a work poetically coherent, relating to its source synchronically as well as diachronically.

At the same time, it occurs to me that, despite certain rather obvious obstacles, feminist translators’ work can begin to take on the magical impos- sibility of Menard’s project, and that this magical impossibility mounn both the radical potential of the feminist project as well as its political dangerousness.

Perhaps the easiest type of disparity to spot in translated texts is the anachronism or archaism. However, we must georgfs in mind that the standards of acceptability vary from period to period and from genre to genre. Such an understand- ing of language has certainly become problematic in light of a great deal of post-modern criticism, including some feminist literary theory.

Epistemologies and assumptions about human nature also come into play,26 and though these distinctions are rarely rendered explicit in theorizing about the practice of translations and when they are, it is in schematic usually dualistic fashion, they nevertheless play a critical role in the process of thinking about translation. Sometimes the miracle does indeed happen. The Meanings of Feminist Biblical Translation 29 one which opens up our own agency in relation to the text while situating our work in a particular theological position that demands further theorizing.

On Translating Infante’s In- ferno,” Sub-stance 42 In “Pierre Menard, autor del Quijote,” a story invoked frequently by theorists of translation, Jorge Luis Borges recounts the tale of an early twentieth-century French writer who plans to write the Spanish novel, Don Quijote.
