Example text

The fable of the meaning of the Thunder is found in the Brihadaranyaka – Upanishad, 5, 1. A translation is found in Deussen’s Sechzig Upanishads des Veda, p. 489. Admittedly, an English translation is provided, alongside information about the source of the citation. But the reader is referred not to an English translation of the Upanishads but a German one. This is the only time that Eliot refers the reader to a translation of a foreign text in his notes, and he sends us from one foreign text to another (and this despite the fact that translations of the Upanishads were available in English at the time).

Particularly in the context of modernist literature, however, we need to maintain a scepticism towards any such distinctions. What is ‘representational’ and what ‘stylistic’? 5 But when we examine modernist fiction that might initially appear to fit neatly into Sternberg’s first category – fiction that represents interlingual and intercultural encounters, for example – we find that the implications, and the effects, of such apparently representational multilingualism exceed their mimetic function, and the distinction between mimesis and stylisation becomes blurred.

2 Representing Languages in Modernist Fiction The emblematically modernist themes of exile, travel and intercultural encounter lead, inevitably, to the necessity of representing different languages. 1 This process is by no means straightforward, however, and indeed, the very act of representing a polylingual world might be seen to induce a perspective on language that can be related to modernism’s ‘linguistic turn’, because attempts to represent languages other than the primary language of the text inevitably draw attention to the problems of linguistic representation per se.
