Los problemas emocionales derivados de la traducción de "Pour un tombeau d’Anatole" de Stéphane Mallarmé, traducido al español por Mario Campaña

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


In this article, I present some of the difficulties arising from the translation into Spanish of Pour un tombeau d'Anatole, by Stephane Mallarme. My aim is to break with the insignificance of translators, often considered as an emotionally empty being.

Campana has faced several difficulties during the translation of the unfinished elegy, such as the strategic decisions related to linguistic aspects. However, the main difficulty he had to deal with were the emotional issues involved in the translation of a literary text of deep psychological content. He also had to deal with the anguish and the pain that Mallarme had impregnated in the elegy. As a result, the translation had left a deep trace in Campana, who even stated that the translation of Pour un tombeau d'Anatole had been "the deepest spiritual experience in his life".
