In If This Be Treason: Translation and Its Dyscontents Rabassa offers a cool-headed and humorous defense of translation, laying out his views on the art of the craft. Anecdotal, and always illuminating, If This Be Treason traces Rabassa's career, from his boyhood on a New Hampshire farm, his school days collecting languages, the two-and-a-half years he spent overseas during WWII, his travels, until one day I signed a contract to do my first translation of a long work for a commercial publisher. Rabassa concludes with his rap sheet, a consideration of the various authors and the over 40 works he has translated. This long-awaited memoir is a joy to read, an instrumental guide to translating, and a look at the life of one of its great practitioners.
