  • The Art of the Translator
    By comparison my first foray into literary translation Roman Elegy Haus Publishing 2013 has been plain sailing The original novel Stillbach by Sabine Gruber C H Beck Verlag Munich 2011 is a superbly modulated piece of prose which blends fiction with real historical event Embedded within a framework narrative set in 2009 the core of Gruber s book comprises the interlinked stories of two women Emma and Ines both German speaking Italians from the fictional South Tyrolean village of the title a speaking name quiet brook which would have been lost on English readers At different times the women come to work in Rome as chambermaids and end up spending their entire lives there The two eras covered by the heart of the novel are the Fascist period including after the fall of Mussolini s regime the German occupation of Rome and the so called Anni di Piombo Years of Lead the long phase of political unrest that culminated in 1978 in the death of Pope Paul VI and the kidnap and assassination of former prime minister Aldo Moro The sheer storytelling drive of Stillbach and the clarity of the author s language made it relatively straightforward for me to translate its narrative passages But I still had to be alive to linguistic anachronisms a perspicacious proofreader who kindly reviewed my draft translation rightly pointed out that my rendition of a pejorative German phrase for a good time girl as some dippy bimbo just didn t ring true for the late 1970s I changed it to some scatterbrained bed hopper Incidentally given the novel s Roman setting my rudimentary Italian was put to the test as well just before the book went to press I fortunately realized that Triestina was not a proper name at all but meant the woman from Trieste Dialogue But where I was really out of my comfort zone not having dealt with fiction before was in the dialogue Getting each character to talk naturally did not come easily at least at first I found the most effective way of road testing what I had written was to read the exchanges aloud to myself and listen for whether any of the interjections or the rhythm of the characters speech jarred I also learnt to ring the changes on such formulae as he said she replied he responded she answered etc but not so insistently as to make it seem as though I d swallowed a thesaurus Lost in Translation And finally to the bêtes noires of the translator idioms puns and slang There were only a handful of these in Stillbach Roman Elegy but even so some had to be dropped as they were untranslatable One extended anecdote however called for a little more ingenuity on my part It concerned a servant colleague of Emma s in 1930s Rome who skivvied in the kitchens of the German Embassy For a banquet there in honour of Mussolini a dish involving dozens of boiled eggs had to be

  • Germany and the Burden of History
    was by comparison with other concentration camps quite small quite insignificant Society seems to have quietly collapsed The mayor is corrupt the quality of cakes and pastries is a major focus the men are relentlessly unfaithful to their wives while the women who appear are strangely compliant to the sexual whims of the males Everyone clings to the old class distinctions while terrorist bombs explode mysterious individuals emerge to take pot shots at the brothers and Franz the traumatised old servant and Wehrmacht soldier builds a model of the old Durst concentration camp from matchsticks Symbolically then it is no surprise when a sewer in the main street bursts releasing a terrible stench and uncovering a mass grave underneath the town The book s characters have the same kind of careless jauntiness as The Aerodrome but without the more explicitly allegorical approach How German Is It assumes an assured semi surreal quality in which the characters seem inhabit a similar but less familiar society to the one we are aware of underlining the book s demand that we re double our focus on what we see This is a world where memories are smothered in concrete and collective amnesia In this small community did it really matter what anyone may have done or failed to do in the war If they did anything it was the predictable The devil s advocate is everywhere in this book where there are all too often convenient short cuts to good and bad the brothers father for example is revered as an anti Nazi hero shot for his involvement in the Stauffenberg plot when for many of the war years he was comfortable enough to wear his swastika lapel pin In this world the urban terrorists seem to have captured the moral high ground even though their crimes are characterised by a pathetic randomness a bomb in the Post Office a guard on a waterway persuaded to shoot two policemen and blow up the lock that allows ships into the North Sea The terrorists may be emptily destructive but are they the force that might release those myriad tensions Is violence the only response to the past and does the past still live When finally Ulrich Hargenau is hypnotised he was positive that he was not a good hypnotic subject but as he opened his eyes he finds his right hand raised in a stiff salute I think we re getting there the doctor said pleasantly What is really at stake is one s image of oneself says the quote which prefaces the novel The questions we are left to answer at the end include when should the past become scenery When if ever can the mistakes of past society be ignored And what kind of image of the future do we have Those questions may have become less urgent with the passage of time They are though questions that every generation needs to answer for itself Elisabeth Wiskeman was born in England though
