A meme from Booking Through Thursday.
Today’s topic is “I saw a Latin edition of “The Hobbit” last time I was at the bookstore… Do you read any foreign languages? Do you ENJOY reading in other languages?”
I do not read or speak any foreign languages. When I read books that were originally in other languages I am curious about the effects of translation. I wonder what it would be like to speak another language fluently enough to appreciate the intricacies of fiction originally written in said language. I am also a long ways from such an ability. I know that often something is “lost in translation” but I am no where near that fluency.
