9780748698028: Discourses of Regulation and Resistance: Censoring Translation in the Stalin and Khrushchev Era Soviet Union (Russian Language and Society EUP)

Despite tense and often hostile relations between the USSR and the West, Soviet readers were voracious consumers of foreign culture and literature as the West was both a model for emulation and a potential threat. Discourses of Regulation and Resistance explores this ambivalent and contradictory attitude to the West and employs in depth analysis of archive material to offer a comprehensive study of the censorship of translated literature in the Soviet Union.

Detailed case studies from two of the most important Soviet literary journals, examine how editors and the authorities mediated and manipulated the image of the West, tracing debates and interventions in the publication process. Drawing upon material from Soviet archives, it shows how editors and translators tried to negotiate between their own ideals and the demands of Soviet ideology, combining censorship and resistance in a complex interplay of practices.

As part of a new and growing body of work on translation as a cultural phenomenon, this book will make essential reading for students and scholars working in Translation Studies as well as cultural historians of Russia and the Soviet Union.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is an in depth study of the censorship of translated literature in the Soviet Union. Although the relationship between the Soviet Union and the West is often understaood as ambivalent and even hostile, Soviet readers were voracious consumers of Western literature in translation. This book shows how the world culture presented to Soviet citizens, a vital component of an educated and cultured person s identity, was distorted and manipulated through censorship. Tracing the development of the censorship of literature translated from English into Russian between the 1930s and 1960s, the book examines how the phenomenon changed after Stalin s death, examining the means by which censors tried to negotiate between their own ideals and ideas about the West, and the demands made by Soviet ideology, combining censorship and resistance in a complex interplay of practices. It views Soviet censorship through the lens of contemporary Western theories. It features detailed case studies drawn from two major journals, Internatsional naia literature and Inostrannaia literatura. It exposes the political, ideological and puritanical aspects of censorship practices. It provides in depth analysis of archive material, including translators typescript, internal reviews and correspondence between journals and the Party. It reconstructs micro level practices of textual censorship. Bookseller Inventory # AA79780748698028
