A Bermanian Stylistic Analysis of Alice Walker’s The Color Purple and Its Turkish Translation
Üst veriTüm öğe kaydını göster
Style composes the gist of literary works, as it is an inseparable element that forms a coherent meaning in texts. The style in the literary texts is mainly achieved with the usage of various linguistic variants. The representation of the literary style in the translation poses a significant challenge for the translator, as these linguistic variants are hard to be rendered in the target language. This study focuses on to what extent the stylistic features in the literary works can be reflected to another language and, to that end, it analyses Alice Walker’s well-known novel The Color Purple and its Turkish translation Renklerden Moru by Armağan İlkin as a case study. A comparative stylistic analysis is carried out between the two texts within the framework of Antoine Berman’s analytic of translation.
