  • Die Übersetzung des Romans "To Kill a Mockingbird" von by Helena Schneider

    By Helena Schneider

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Dolmetschen / Übersetzen, notice: 2,3, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Anglophonie), Veranstaltung: Übersetzerseminar: "Literarische Übersetzung", Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Das Thema dieser Hausarbeit im Rahmen des Seminars “Literarische Übersetzung” ist die Übersetzung des Romans "To Kill a Mockingbird" von Harper Lee.Das Ziel derArbeit besteht darin, die deutsche Übersetzung mit dem englischen unique zu vergleichen und auf ihre Angemessenheit zu überprüfen. Daher wurde für die Untersuchung der übersetzungskritische Ansatz gewählt.

    Zu den wichtigsten Aspekten, die bei der Übertragung des Buches in die Zielsprache zu beachten sind, zählen der Schreibstil der Autorin, die Wiedergabe der Erzählperspektive und die Verwendung von Sprachvarietäten. Ebenso von Bedeutung sind Anredeformen, Realia und nicht zu vergessen der Titel.

    Bei der examine der ausgesuchten Textauszüge bin ich in zwei Schritten vorgegangen. Zunächst habe ich versucht, auf Besonderheiten des Romans und die sich daraus ergebenden Schwierigkeiten im Hinblick auf die Übersetzung aufmerksam zu machen. Anschließend habe ich die deutschen Lösungsvorschläge vor diesem Hintergrund analysiert und bewertet.

    Auf der Grundlage dieser einzelnen Kapitel habe ich darüber hinaus versucht, der Frage nachzugehen, wie die Übersetzerin mit der engen Einbettung des Romans an eine bestimmte Zeit und vor allem an eine bestimmte Kultur umgegangen ist. Denn sowohl die Thematik als auch die Athmosphäre sind untrennbar verbunden mit der amerikanischen Kultur, genauer gesagt der der Südstaaten. Dies durch eine Übersetzung für eine andere Kultur verständlich zu vermitteln, ohne dass an Authentizität verloren geht, struggle sicherlich keine leichte Aufgabe, auf jeden Fall aber eine Herausforderung.
