David Bellos’ Sebald Lecture

One of the upsides of this very turbulent year has been the chance to attend—albeit virtually—a whole series of events and lectures that not everyone would have had access to otherwise. And one of the most inspiring moments has been the Sebald Lecture in Literary Translation, organized by the British Center for Literary Translation together with the British Library and the National Center for Writing. In 2020, it was given by award-winning translator and university professor David Bellos, who wrote Is That A Fish in Your Ear? The Amazing Adventure of Translation (Penguin, 2012). The title of the lecture was “The Myths and Mysteries of Literary Translation” and it was simply marvellous.
