The recurring question of traduttore/tradittore will concern me here. In the prologue to his translation of Tacitus, the encyclopedist D'Alembert maintains that one should not expect much from a translator. Translators are faithful to the original if they produce an approximate and legible text. Eliot used to say that the importance given to Poe in France at the end of the nineteenth century was the product of the imperfect English of Baudelaire and Mallarme. It is true that in Baudelaire's translations there are unorthodox semantic displacements.

If we can translate an anonymous text—where the authority of the signature is absent—it is because there is no other authorial voice than the one we construct through reading and interpreting a text in order to allow it to make sense.
