Description

Multilingual literature defies simple translation. Beginning with this insight, Brian Lennon examines the resistance multilingual literature offers to book publication itself. In readings of G. V. Desani's All about H. Hatterr, Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange, Christine Brooke-Rose's Between, Eva Hoffman's Lost in Translation, Emine Sevgi OEzdamar's Mutterzunge, and Orhan Pamuk's Istanbul, among other works, Lennon shows how nationalized literary print culture inverts the values of a transnational age, reminding us that works of literature are, above all, objects in motion.
