MetadataShow full item record
This BA thesis focuses on the translation and translation process of the short story "A Tiny Feast" by contemporary American writer Chris Adrian. It contains a detailed description of magical realism literature and an analysis suggesting A Tiny Feast fits into the genre. Also, a short version of the Laswell formula is used to create a thorough understanding of the source and target text. Next, the translation problems that occurred during the translation process are explored by means of Christiane Nord’s four translation problem categories. The thesis concludes with the actual translation.
