Special Session: Translations of the Spanish Classic Celestina: Half a Millennium and Counting
Translations of Celestina began to emerge soon after its 16-act form had morphed into the 21-act Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea, helping to make the work the first European best-seller. There were 16th- and/or 17th-century versions in Italian, French, German, English, Dutch, and Latin. Most of these early translations have been treated to modern scholarly editions; and some new translations have appeared, including two English renditions first published in 2009, both bearing cover art by Picasso. The generative power of Rojas's masterpiece, which has also inspired theatrical, cinematic, musical, and dance adaptations, is ongoing. The aim of this Special Session is to explore the many different ways that translations have contributed to Celestina studies over the centuries. Papers may deal with textual, cultural, or translation issues.
