Language and translation

Abstract

At first sight, it may seem odd for this Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare’s Language to include a chapter on Shakespeare’s language and translation. After all, a translation renders a text into another language; inasmuch as a translation of Shakespeare is a real translation, it will no longer be in Shakespeare’s language.
