作为中国古典文化最珍贵的遗产之一,宋词在体现中国传统文化方面发挥着重要作用,其中苏轼的词是中国历史上最具代表性和经典性的作品之一。苏轼是宋代最杰出的文人之一,他的诗、词、赋和诗歌都享有很高的声誉。目前关于苏轼词的英文翻译很丰富,但对于与翻译相关的研究却比较匮乏。

本文主要探讨苏轼的豪放词代表作《念奴娇—赤壁怀古》,分析许渊冲和杨宪益两位译者分别采取的不同翻译策略。本研究采用对比的研究方法,从韵律、文体风格和文化意象三方面对比两个不同的翻译版本,尝试探究两位译者的翻译策略,进一步认识他们对翻译本质和文学翻译活动的理解。

Abstract

Ci, one of the most precious heritage of Chinese classical culture, plays a vital effect in reflecting Chinese traditional culture. Among copious Chinese ci, Su Shi’s ci is one of the most representative and classic work throughout the Chinese history. Su Shi is one of the most outstanding Chinese literati in Song Dynasty. He enjoys a high reputation for his prose, ci, fu and poetry. The English translations of Su Shi’s ci are copious but the research related to this areas are few.

This paper mainly focuses on Su Shi’s “Nian Nu Jiao-Memories of The Past at Red Cliff” which is one of his representative works featured by unconstrained words to analyze translation strategies adopted respectively by two translators, namely Xu Yuanchong and Yang Xianyi. With the purpose of analyzing translation strategies, the paper compares two translation versions word by word, phrase by phrase, line by line. Apart from, the paper sheds light upon their understanding about the nature of translation and task of literary translation.

The whole thesis can be divided into five chapters. The first chapter briefly introduces research background, purpose and methodology as well as thesis structure. The second chapter exhibits a literature review of the whole thesis. The third chapter makes a contrastive study on the two English versions by metric system, stylistic features and cultural images. The fourth chapter discusses the translation strategies of domestication and foreignization in different translation versions. The fifth chapter is a conclusion of the major findings of the thesis, pointing out limitations of the study and offering further expectation for future studies.
