Translating Rhythm in Les Mains d'Edwige Au Moment De La naissance

Abstract (Summary)

This thesis discusses how one should approach the translation of rhythm in a theatre text as demonstrated through my own translation process of Wajdi Mouawad's Les mains d'Edwige au moment de la naissance from French to English. It explores a departure from the traditional definition of rhythm in text, through the work of Henri Meschonnic and Clive Scott, compares the two dominant contemporary approaches to theatre translation, and lays out my experience of discovering how non-traditional rhythm "lives" in this particular text, blending a traditional translation approach with a practice-based translation approach, and documenting the effects this strategy had on my translation choices and the final product.
