A Critical Revisit to André Lefevere's Translation Theory

Geng Qiang;  
After a critical review of André Lefevere's theoretical texts and identification of the sym ptoms of silence and tension in his texts,this paper aims to make some contribution to the improvem ent of his translation theory in general,and his rew riting theory in particular. The study shows that four key words,metaliterature,refraction,rewriting and grid,can be used to map the trajectory his theory went through. Central to his theory are five issues: interplay betw een literary system and its environment;control factor w ithin literary system; social roles played by rew riters; translation's function in shaping canon,cultural capital and other's im ages; restraining factors for translation. Inside his theory lies the internal tension between his hypothesis and the cultural logic of late capitalism upon which the hypothesis is based,because his hypothesis puts much more emphasis on the binary control of ideology and poetics than on the econom icaspect; on the rew ritings of language code than on that of non-linguistic code; on how constraints influence agents,than the vise versa. Considering the three aspects,his theory can be m ade to be much balanced.
