      Translation Contrast

 

 

Format:2 pages, MLA page and citation formatting, plus a cover page

You must document your sources to receive a passing grade.

Primary Sources: the bibles themselves (see citation handout)

Secondary Sources: A published description of the bible you’re contrasting to the NRSV

The analysis, contrast, and argument must be your own original work.

 

Task:  Select 1-5 lines from the New Testament.  Contrast their rendering in the New Revised Standard Version to their rendering in another translation.  (You may choose to use a contrast version other than the NRSV if you have reason to and if you explain why in your essay.)

 

Please affix a cover page to your paper that contains both translations of the passage you’ve chosen. Early in your paper, briefly describe the history, editorial team, and intended audience of the bible you’ve chosen to contrast against the NRSV. Stephen Harris's and Zondervan's descriptions of several important translations are available on Blackboard.

 

Assert a thesis in your introduction that declares, in specific terms, the critical difference you see between the lines in these two translations (please identify the translation you have chosen to use in your introduction).  Then use the rest of your paper to prove that thesis, breaking it down into smaller pieces of logic and proving each one, quoting and analyzing language from both of the bibles to develop and prove your thesis. The text itself serves as evidence for literary arguments.

 

The fundamental question you seek to answer is: How do the translators’ choices affect the resulting text? You may find differences in content or message, tone, implications, treatment of race, class, or gender, literary form, or register (type of language), but whatever difference you identify, I will look in your introduction for your description of it, and I will look to your body paragraphs to see you trace it back to the specific words or phrases the translators have chosen.

 

Translations can be found on various on-line bible databases. The Bible Gateway contains several: http://www.ntgateway.com/bible-translations/
