Book Description:
This book is the first Chinese translation of William Wordsworth's 'The Prelude'. The translation is faithful to the original in form by rendering each line of ten syllables painstakingly into ten Chinese characters. (English and facing Chinese translation) William Wordsworth's (1770 1850) The Prelude is an extremely long poem and one of the important works in the history of English literature. It was originally conceived as an appendix, and then as a prologue, to a great poem to be titled, The Recluse or Views of Nature, Man, and Society, which Wordsworth had planned to compose but never completed. In China, Wordsworth's poems are famous for their description of nature and rural life as well as philosophical contemplation. A Chinese translation of The Prelude is certainly significant and to be welcomed. The translator should be recommended for his hard work, learning, and linguistic skills. On the whole, the translation is quite smooth and relatively faithful to the original. The translator has tried to render the poem into Chinese as elegantly and artistically as he possibly can. Since the original was written in blank verse, and in iambic pentameter, the translator apparently tried to preserve the meter in the entire Chinese translation. He also made effort in rhyming occasionally.
