if you've run out of books to read... can check out "Unamunian Microcosms: Four Short Stories in a New Translation into English," now accessible through the world wide web. The abstract, other general information, and a link to the full pdf can be found here. It has bookmarks, so if you want you can skip the parts that you don't feel like reading. A tip: if you open it with Adobe Acrobat (as opposed to Preview, for instance), it should automatically show facing pages, which will make things easier when you get to the side-by-side translations.

I really liked it. It gave me some great ideas for my dissertation. And thanks for putting it online--I've been urging more people to ETD. It's a great way to go!

Wow, you actually read it? Thanks! I know what you mean about ETDs: I am really surprised by the low proportion of people who publish ETDs. I figure if the point is for people to read this stuff (and I think it is, especially with something like first-time translations), the best way to make it available to the greatest number of people is through the web. So you're keeping on with translation studies?
