An Interpretative Study on the Translation of Gerhart Hauptmannâ€™s Novel BahnwÃ¤rter Thiel
AbstractThis article is about the Turkish translation of Gerhart Hauptmanâ€™s (1862- 1946) most known novel â€œBahnwÃ¤rter Thielâ€ (1888). Hauptmann, who won the Nobel Literary Price in 1912, is one of the most famous German authors and the most important representative of the literary trend, called Naturalizm. In â€œBahnwÃ¤rter Thielâ€ Hauptmann describes in a magnificient way the mentality in the end of the 19th century. His description has been very effective and still effects the reader today. The novel was translated into Turkish in 1946. From then on there hasnâ€™t been any study on the Turkish version, â€œHat BekÃ§isi Thielâ€. Thinking that in literary translation the authorâ€™s message resulting from the content, form and style of the text has to be transferred, this article analyses some selected passages, sentences, words and idioms by comparing them with the original version and discusses the solutions found by the translator. The aim of the article is to clarify to what extent the translator was successful concerning the transfer of the authorâ€™s originality and message to the Turkish reader.
