Abstract:

This article presents a critical overview of the European translations of Shakespeare’s Sonnets, including the Bulgarian ones. The problems of translation are discussed under three general rubrics: (1) problems owing to prosodic differences between English and other languages; (2) problems owing to differences between the English and other poetic traditions; (3) problems owing to the specific features of Shakespeare’s poetics. The last two sections of the article are devoted to a discussion of basic translation strategies and the tendencies in the historical development of the European translation of the Sonnets.
