    Translating Keats's "Ode to Autumn" into Arabic Poetry: A Practical Approach
    (2007-10-21) Dr. Mu'tasem Tawfiq Khader

    This study is a demonstration of my understanding of poetry translation from a personal, practical perspective and presents an insight into the nature of this type of translation, which is subjective because the translator cannot be neutral. In this paper, I record my experience in translating Keats' "Ode to Autumn," presenting my ideas, feelings, impressions, and the steps I followed while translating this ode. I also present scholars' and translators' ideas349and opinions that supported mine. By using this practical approach, I tackled a number of issues related to translating poetry and the reader’s appreciation of and pleasure from the product of the translation, which I consider the criterion for success. Thus, I emphasize the reader's importance in this approach and present to him, as an example to judge, my translation into Arabic of Keats’ “Ode to Autumn". However, this approach does not underestimate translation theories. At the end of this paper, there is an appendix that includes “Ode to Autumn,” followed by two literary translations of this poem, in which I use the traditional form and the free verse form, respectively.

    تهدف هذه الدراسة إلى توضيح التباين في المفاهيم في مصطلح الحروب الصليبية عند الغرب والمسلمين حيث أن استعمال هذا المصلح في اللغات الأوروبية يقابل بسوء فهم عند المسلمين، فالمعاني الضمنية الايجابية لهذا المصطلح في اللغات الغربية التي تعبر عن جهد نبيل ومحاولة يفتخر من اجل هدف سامي أو ضد شيء سيء أو مشين، فمثلا يقال وبشكل طبيعي في حملة ضد المخدرات قامت الحكومة "بحرب صليبية" ضد المخدرات، بينما إذا قيل حرب صليبية ضد الإرهاب فان الكلمة سيكون لها وقع سيء عند المسلمين (والعديد من المسيحيين الأرثوذكسيين الشرقيين كذلك) لما تعبر هذه الكلمة عن صور ذهنية لمحاربين متعطشين للدماء يحرقون الأخضر واليابس وهم ينطلقون باتجاه الأراضي المقدسة......
