Abstract

 

With the establishment of a corpus of two classic English novels Pride and Prejudice and David Copperfield with their originals and several Chinese (re)translations, the present study explores the reasons for the retranslation boom in mainland China in the 1990s. By siting translators, publishers and government policy in historical contexts, it has been found that the shift of government policy from class struggle to economic construction, reform and opening-up is the major reason for the retranslating boom in mainland China in the 1990s.

Key words: Mainland China; 1990s, retranslation; boom; government policy
