As we’ve been talking about translation, I thought I’d reblog this BLT post on a new “hyper-literal” translation of the Haggadah, the prayerbook/script/order of service used for the Passover Seder. Theophrastus quotes portions of an NPR interview with translator Nathan Englander, who talks about the translation process, why he made some of the choices he made, and discusses some excerpts from the translation. Quite beautiful.
