I was expected to edit the translation, but essentially, as the editor, I would have to agree with whatever the translator eventually decided to do. Even now, the blurbs on the back cover of This Earth of Mankind include this statement: After Pramoedya released his first Buru Quartet book in , foreign publishers not only English-language ones clamoured for his permission to translate his work.

Resensi Novel “Cantik Itu Luka”

Many of them ended up bypassing his publisher Hasta Mitra, who was treated more like an agent, and paid his royalties directly to him. In the end, to get their books translated and published in English these two authors had to rely on two local independent publishers with scarcely any money behind them, and two western academics-cum-translators. Translation Problems, or Writing Problems? This, di Giovanni said, is a writing problem, not a translation problem. The original translation manuscript I received from Michael Garcia had, despite his best intentions, a curious mix of writing and translation problems.

He said this would be jarring, even alienating, if replicated in English. He then claimed to have invented a method to replicate the staccato rhythm without the repetition of words, which involved using and manipulating English punctuations such as em-dashes, colons and commas. Djenar does make good use of repetition of words, but mostly not to create a staccato effect, but to shock the reader with the meaning of the words.

Memek mulai cemburu kepada teman-temannya yang mempunyai nama berawalan me. Memek iri dan merasa mereka jauh lebih beruntung. Maka, diam-diam Memek mencuri buku pekerjaan rumah Melly dan membuangnya di tempat sampah. Akibatnya Melly dihukum berdiri di depan kelas.

Memek began to envy friends whose first names began with the letters me. How much more fortunate they were, she thought jealously. As a result Melly was punished by having to stand in front of the class. Repetition is Meaning Djenar uses repetition of words and phrases elsewhere in her stories, and always with a desire to shock the readers as her motive. In its structure, the story recalls Rashomon by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, or the Four Gospels, but Djenar used it less for its allusive effect than for its intended shocking effect of showing off to the readers how conventional most narrative techniques in Indonesian stories are and, by proxy, how modern she is.

Or, according to Katrin Bandel, as an experiment in narrative style which added nothing to the story. It was also written in the old Dutch-era Van Ophuysen spelling. The new spelling and its attendant new idioms and vocabularies, mainly derived from bureaucratspeak, can according to Anderson give the impression that anything not written according to the new grammatical rules was primitive, leftist, useless, unreadable or downright despicable.

Mereka Bilang, Saya Monyet! In its current incarnation, the written EYD Indonesian is very different to spoken Indonesian, especially to Indonesian spoken in the capital, Jakarta, where Djenar lives. Reading contemporary Indonesian stories, especially those set in Jakarta, like the stories in Mereka Bilang, Saya Monyet!

The readers would read the words on the page and at the same time imagine how those same words would have been said in spoken Indonesian. Sometimes, the spoken Indonesian would break through the written Indonesian as if surfacing for air. So someone, obviously a Jakarta person, had whistled a catcall to a woman who was smoking.

The translator was also insisting that the phrase be kept in its original language, followed with a parenthetical clause explaining its meaning in English.

Realizing that the original Indonesian text is likely to have already been a form of translation from less formal, spoken, Indonesian might have also suggested to the translator alternative strategies of translation.

Her name is Cunt! One who is mabuk kepayang drunk with kepayang is madly in love, or slighty intoxicated.


No Indonesian would stop to think twice about the phrase. No one would even remember that kepayang is actually a tree. Such a seemingly beneficent but ultimately misleading stance on translating a text can only create more problems for the translator. But in his haste to find an equivalent word that would be less alienating to English-language readers, he ended up with Spanish.

My editorial voices in this translation were very faint. Djenar was hardly ever consulted while the translation was being prepared. After a few discussions with her after the translation was handed in, it also became clear to us that it would have taken too long to rewrite some parts of the translation to better express her original voice, so we decided to leave the translation as it was.

It was going to be launched there with much fanfare, and with the hope that some commercial English-language publishers might notice it and pick it up. Vintage Books, , p.

I started out really digging it--a magic realist family fable about a Dewi Ayu, a Dutch-Indo woman who comes back to life twenty-one years after she died and after she gave birth to her fourth daughter, a monstrously ugly girl she named Beauty. Stories and Studies of Strange Things ; in magic realism reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's epic tale of Latin America, One Hundred Years of Solitude or Salman Rushdie's mesmerizing novel of India, Midnight's Children ; and in the taut rendering of wartime atrocities, it is more explicitly a depiction of abuse and violence against women as similarly narrated in Mo Yan's hallucinatory novel of China's history, Big Breasts and Wide Hips.

Jelas saya kemudian salut kepada penulis karena bisa meramu plot yang bertindihan dan kompleks dalam buku setebal kurang dari halaman. Borges on Writing New York: There is no denying that Dewi Ayu, her four daughters, and the men in their lives are the brilliant and vibrant center that holds the story together.

Sikapnya yang tenang membuatnya cepat akrab dengan Mama Kalong. If you have read books by African or Asian authors, you will be prepared.
