Review

"The publication of the collected essays in Translated! gives us the chance ... to appreciate fully Holmes' pioneering role ... his grasp of the subject and his sureness of touch command respect ... it is hard to imagine a better introduction to ... translation studies." - Theo Hermans, in: New Comparison "Holmes writes with assurance and vision ... Translated! can be warmly recommended. It is a truly absorbing book." - John Desmond Gallagher, in: Lebende Sprachen "... it was a unique experience for me to reread, ... in a single volume, all of James Holmes' articles ... stunned by their remarkable coherence ... contemporary trends of carrying out descriptive translation studies ... could be seen as a direct offspring of Holmes' pioneering work ... the best I could do is to recommend ... (re)reading Translated!" - Hendrik van Gorp, in: Target "Holmes ... was in fact the doyen of European translation studies, and his importance in this field is brought out by [t]his ... book, Translated!" - Daniel Weissbort, in: Periplus: Poetry in Translation
