Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper addresses problems in the translation of literary genre designations, taking as a focus the classical Chinese genre of "fu". Drawing on aspects of literary genre theory, it examines a range of possible renderings of the term "fu" as a means to assess the ways in which issues of genericity and cultural appropriacy may affect translation of genre designations.
