The river of memory traduction de la mémoire de l'eau de Ying Chen
The primary topic of this thesis is the translation into English of Ying Chen's La Mémoire de l'eau, a novel written by a Chinese migrant writer who moved to Quebec in 1989 and writes in French. In addition to presenting a translation of this novel, the thesis examines migrant writing in Canada, Ying Chen's life and her works, Chinese culture, literary translation in Canada, two of the author's novels in translation, as well as the numerous challenges involved in literary translation. Migrant writing serves as a necessary backdrop for the translation that will be analysed."--Résumé abrégé par UMI.
