A Translation Study of “Saxon’s Heroes After the Calamity” From the Perspective of Brazilian Cannibalism

Yingying JIN


Brazilian scholars have proposed cannibalism to get rid of the cultural and spiritual colonization of strong cultural nations, which becomes an important branch of the post-colonial theory. In 1963, De Campos linked cannibalism with the translation theory in On Translation as Creation and Criticism. This thesis will study “Saxon’s Heroes after the Calamity” based on the translation theory of Brazilian cannibalism to provide the research of Lin Shu’s translations with a new perspective.
