Course Info
It is hard to imagine two languages as disparate as English and Turkish. Their grammars function with entirely different rules and conventions. However, they share a common quality of absolute openness to influence. This commonality may be a good starting point for us the Turkish-speaking people to evaluate the powers of our mother tongue and one of the most widely used vehicular languages of all times, that is, English. In this first semester of our translational journey we’ll focus on the works of some great essayists of English language, performing their art in different intellectual fields, and we’ll try to discover both the delight and difficulty of recreating these texts in Turkish.
