Beckett’s Bilingualism and the Translation of His Work into a Third Language

image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

As with any other author, the contradiction between fidelity and license is an important issue to take into account when translating Beckett. However, working with a Beckett text presents a unique characteristic, in that he himself provided versions of his novels and plays into English and French. This article examines the position of the translator as regards Beckett’s bilingualism and considers the effects that this situation may have in the translator’s practice. Additionally, a minimum set of principles are suggested as guidelines when translating Beckett into a third language.
