“The translator is literature’s great unsung hero. The labor is antlike, the pay mediocre and the only notice a small credit on an inside page and the ritual abuse of authors everywhere.” William Deresiewicz, who teaches English at Yale, reviews If This Be Treason by Gregory Rabassa in today’s NYT. Rabassa translated authors like Miguel Ángel Asturias and Gabriel García Márquez.
