Example text

The culture or tradition of a post-colonial writer acts as a metatext which is rewritten – explicitly and implicitly, as both background and foreground – in the act of literary creation. The task of the interlingual translator has much in common with the task of the post-colonial writer; where one has a text, however, the other has the metatext of culture itself. A more significant difference in the two literary activities has to do with the parameters of constraint. A translator is faced with a fixed text (one usually freely chosen, to be sure, but fixed nonetheless); such a fixed text includes cultural and linguistic elements that are givens for the translator and that typically involve factors that are particularly problematic for the receiving audience.

Yam foo-foo and vegetable soup was the chief food in the celebration. So much of it was cooked that, no matter how heavily the family ate or how many friends and relatives they invited from neighboring villages, there was always a large quantity of food left over at the end of the day. The story was always told of a wealthy man who set before his guests a mound of foo-foo so high that those who sat on one side could not see what was happening on the other, and it was not until late in the evening that one of them saw for the first time his in-law who had arrived during the course of the meal and had fallen to on the opposite side.

Where Tagore – through auto translation – turned for acceptance to the literary world of the colonizing power (Sengupta), contemporary post-colonial writers have a different set of priorities. 27 The case of Ngãugãi is instructive with respect to these issues of internationalization, patronage, audience, and the extent to which an audience is ‘brought to the text’; Ngãugãi also illustrates the fine line between post-colonial writing in a metropolitan language and literary translation. In 1977, after writing several successful novels in English, Ngãugãi turned to writing in his native language, Gikuyu; since then his literary works have been accessible to international audiences only through literary translation.
