La voix naturaliste des écrivains-traducteurs : le cas de Eduardo de Barros Lobo


Abstract: In the context of naturalist transfers, we propose to reflect on the way in which the translation of Zola’s works has acted on the translator-writer who, by appropriating the translated text, pursues the reception of Zola’s work in the work that he himself will later sign as author. More precisely, we start from the analysis of the bibliography of one of the first translators of Zola in Portugal, Eduardo de Barros Lobo, to place the literary translation in a vast process of reception and metamorphosis of the naturalist text. We conclude that the work of Eduardo de Barros Lobo echoes the diversity of naturalist literature and the coexistence of several literary canons in the context of the globalization of naturalism.
