Sara Copio Sullam : a verse translation
- This dissertation is a verse translation of the complete extant body of poetry written by seventeenth-century Jewish poetess, Sara Copio Sullam. The first chapter investigates Sullam's work in the context of contemporary Jewish writing, the literary movement of female Petrarchism, and the history of epistolary relationships in Italian literature. The second chapter explores the theory of translation utilized in the dissertation, including a broad investigation of the translation of lyric poetry as well as a discussion of specific translation choices--demonstrating how the particulars of Sullam's poetry allowed her to engage in conversation with and defend herself against her male contemporaries. The third and final chapter consists of the translations themselves.
