Far more than a book about translation, This Little Art, is a beautiful treatise on the reading life and the creative life. Through examining her own struggles translating Roland Barthes’s lecture notes, Briggs wanders through the all the questions you typically encounter in translation to get to something more fundamental about the power of words and what happens when we try to communicate with each other.
