Croatian TRanslations of the Belgian Francophone Literature


In this paper we analyze the Croatian perception and reception of the Belgian French language literature from the mid-19th century to the present time, and we examine it through the prism of translation. Our research will, namely, focus on answering the following questions: which authors and which of their works have been translated into Croatian and when (how much time elapsed between the original and its translation), which of them have eventually left a deeper mark, and last, but not least, which authors have never been translated, despite of their unquestionable importance for the Belgian literary corpus. For the sake of clarity, we have divided the time period going from the mid-19th century to the present into four smaller units, using as boundaries the historic dates of 1914, 1945 and 1991. From the theoretical point of view, we will rely on the polysystem theory, which has been elaborated from the beginning of the seventies, on the ground of Russian formalism and the Prague Linguistic Cercle, by the Israeli theorist Itamar Even-Zohar (cf. 1978, 1990)
