Henry S. Turner

Manchester University Press

This essay examines translation as a process of linguistic and cultural mediation, one conditioned (and made possible) by the material book. Henry S. Turner finds in ‘translation’ a useful term for investigating the relationship between form and matter within language itself. Hakluyt’s Principal Navigations identifies its author as a ‘material humanist’ involved in a complex network of human and non-human agents, through which translation itself becomes ‘a process of giving form to matter and of re-mattering the form of language’.

Keywords:   Translation, Hakluyt, Networks, Form, Humanism
