Periodical or collection
Nabokov Online Journal
In their article, “The Problems of Translating Nabokov’s Pnin into Persian,” Gholamreza Shafiee-Sabet (independent scholar) and Atefeh Rabei (Concordia University) focus on the Bahman Khosravi’s Persian translation of Pnin. Drawing on Eugene Nida’s model of translation, they compare the English text and its Persian translation and demonstrate that in the stages of analysis, transfer and restructuring in the process of translation, the translator has failed.
