Fantasy authors transcend culture and national boundaries and there are treasures written in languages other than English. Without translation, how would we ever know the beauty of The Iliad, Andreas Eschbach’s The Carpet Makers, or The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. The art of translation makes these works assessable to a wider audience. The panel will discuss the current state of translation, its impact on international fantasy and those works that have retained the spirit of their original language.
