How is rage translated?
Crónicas is a Latin American literary genre which is now being translated into Norwegian for the first time. What kind of genre is it? How does a country’s language and literature influence how the emotion of rage is translated? Does one get as furious in Norway as one gets in South America, for example? One of the texts in the anthology Cronica, True stories from Latin America is about how the Peruvian journalist Gabriela Wiener managed to become a donor and sell her own eggs to Scandinavian couples.
Wiener and the translator and editor of the anthology, Bente Teigen Gundersen, discuss language, genre and rage in Latin America with the journalist and Spanish translator Helene Hovden Hareide.
The conversation will be in Norwegian.
