In Recycling Red Riding Hood, Sandra L. Beckett explores the contemporary retellings of the world's best-known fairy tale, drawing upon close readings of texts in at least a dozen languages - many of which have never been translated into English. Beckett finds a fascinating interplay of tradition and innovation in these retold fairy tales - which are so varied as to fit almost every generic category and suit almost every literary taste and age group - and analyzes the ways in which authors and illustrators transfigure traditional motifs in order to convey new messages, reach new audiences, and reflect new cultural contexts. Including over sixty illustrations from retellings around the globe, Recycling Red Riding Hood provides a fascinating journey for students, scholars, and all who cherish this universal tale.

Translation Adaptation And Transformation

In recent years adaptation studies has established itself as a discipline in its own right, separate from translation studies. The bulk of its activity to date has been restricted to literature and film departments, focussing on questions of textual transfer and adaptation of text to film. It is however, much more interdisciplinary, and is not simply a case of transferring content from one medium to another. This collection furthers the research into exactly what the act of adaptation involves and whether it differs from other acts of textual rewriting. In addition, the 'cultural turn' in translation studies has prompted many scholars to consider adaptation as a form of inter-semiotic translation. But what does this mean, and how can we best theorize it? What are the semiotic systems that underlie translation and adaptation? Containing theoretical chapters and personal accounts of actual adaptions and translations, this is an original contribution to translation and adaptation studies which will appeal to researchers and graduate students.

Sophie S Planet

Dr. James Hansen is the single most credible scientific voice worldwide on the issue of global warming. In his celebrated first book, Storms of My Grandchildren, he presented the full truth about climate change, a truth born out in the years since as climate disasters continue to ravage our world. The urgency is apparent; the response so far, inadequate. But Hansen remains an optimist. In a series of moving and insightful letters to his granddaughter Sophie, he speaks about the fight to preserve life on the planet, a fight that for her generation will be as personal as it is political--as much about policy actions as about the right of the Monarch, Sophie's favorite butterfly, to live and thrive on this earth. Sophie's Planet turns towards solutions, asking: How can we connect the dots from climate observations to necessary policies? What can be done to preserve our planet for the young people that will follow us? And how can we make the climate story clear to these young people, to prepare them for what will be one of their generation's central struggles: the fight for environmental justice. Hansen's conversations with Sophie offer a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of a life spent at the highest levels of environmental research and policy--including the realms where dark motives prevail--as well as a moving clarion call for the future of the climate change fight.
