The Arabic Translation Context of Fanon’s Les Damnés de la Terre (معذبو الأرض)
Talk and oral presentation by Dr. Sattar Izwaini, AUS Department of Arabic and Translation Studies
Frantz Fanon's writings have been translated into Arabic at different times and within different settings. The presentation discusses the way Fanon's writing has been presented to the Arab readership through two editions of the Arabic translation of his book Les Damnés de la Terre (1961), which was translated by the Syrian physicians-cum-translators Sami Al-Durūbi and Jamal Al-ʾAtāssi as معذبو الأرض and was first published by Dār Al-taliʿa in 1963. The focus here will be on the first edition of 1963 and the revised edition of 2004, highlighting the changes introduced in the revision process.
