Melissa P.’nin çok satanlar listesine giren ve Sicilyalı bir genç kızın cinsel fantezilerini ve tecrübelerini günlük şeklinde anlattığı Cento colpi di spazzola prima di andare a dormire adlı eserinin İngilizce çevirisini temel alarak, bu çalışma Lawrence Venuti’nin kendi yaratıcı eseri görünümünde olan çevirisinin ne derecede çeviriyi yabancılaştırdığını ve çevirmenin görünürlüğünü sağladığını incelemektedir. Tarihsel bir çerçevede Venuti’nin çeviriyi yabancılaştırma ve yerelleştirme ile ilgili görüşlerini sunduktan sonra, bu olgu çalışması, çevirideki metinler üstü materyalleri, çevrilmesi için seçilen bölümleri ve çeviride kullanılan söylemi göz önünde bulundurarak, Venuti’nin İtalya’nın çok satanları arasında bulunan bu eserin çevirmeni olarak çevirideki görünürlüğünü inceleyecektir.


Taking as a case study the English translation of Cento colpi di spazzola prima di andare a dormire by Melissa P., a bestseller in which a Sicilian teenager narrates her erotic fantasies and experiences in form of a diary, this article analyses to what extent Lawrence Venuti’s pronouncements on foreignizing translation and the visibility of the translator are reflected in his own creative work. After placing Venuti’s notions of foreignizing and domesticating translation in a historical context, this case study analyses Venuti’s visibility as a translator of the Italian bestseller considering the paratextual material of his translation, the choice of text to be translated, and the translation discourse itself.
