Title
La réalité québécoise dans la traductions québécoise et française du roman The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz de Mordecai Richler
Abstract
The author examines the treatment of Quebec and North American cultural realities in the translations made in France and in Quebec of Mordecai Richler's 1959 novel, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz. Her starting point is the often harsh criticism expressed by French-speaking Québécois regarding the French translations of Richler's novels. The author uses a comparative, descriptive analysis of the treatment of cultural-specific items (CSI) identified in the corpus, according to pre-established typologies for CSI and translation strategies. Based on theories like polysystem theory, functionalism, and comparative stylistics, her analysis identifies general patterns in both translations and thus contributes to the debate concerning French translations of English-language Quebec novels, as well as Quebec culture and identity, by shedding a new light on the cultural reality depicted in the novel.
