Title ’Dear Selma’ - ‘Dear Velma’ : Selma Lagerlöf’s Translation Instructions to Velma Swanston Howard
Author(s) Sundmark, Björn
Date 2013
Editor(s) Jensen, Hanne; Wegener, Anna
English abstract
Despite Selma Lagerlöf's position as one of Sweden's few internationally acclaimed authors, the translation and publication of Selma Lagerlöf's work into English has for long remained a relatively unexplored field of research. In this paper I seek to redress this situation somewhat by examining the correspondence between Selma Lagerlöf and her American translator Velma Swanston Howard (1868-1937). The aim of this paper is to highlight Lagerlöf's critical feedback and advisory translation instructions to Howard.
