Gregory Rabassa, translator of Latin American literary masterworks, dies at 94 - Washington Post

Monday, June 27, 2016

I have put forth this explanation so many times that I have come to believe it, loath as I am to confess that I was just too lazy to read the book twice.”Gregory Rabassa was born March 9, 1922, in Yonkers, N.Y. His father was a Cuban-born sugar broker, and his mother a New Yorker of English and Scottish ancestry.After his father’s business failed, the family moved to a farm near Hanover, N.H., and operated a country inn. Except for the occasional curse, Dr. Rabassa later said, “the old man didn’t speak much Spanish around the house.”After studying French and Latin in high school, Dr. Rabassa went to Dartmouth College, where he said he “began collecting languages,” including Portuguese, Spanish, Russian and German. During World War II, he joined the Army and was assigned to the Office of Strategic Services, the wartime precursor of the CIA, as a cryptographer. He was stationed in North Africa and Italy, where he learned Italian.He received his bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth in 1945, while serving in the OSS. At Columbia University, he received a master’s degree in Spanish in 1947 and a doctorate in Portuguese language and literature in 1954.He taught at Columbia from 1948 to 1969, when he joined the faculty of Queens College and the graduate school of the City University of New York. He taught courses on Latin American literature until his late 80s.In 1967, Dr. Rabassa received a National Book Award for his translation of “Hopscotch.” He was awarded the National Medal of Arts at a White House ceremony in 2006.His first marriage, to Roney Edelstein, ended in divorce. Survivors include his wife of 50 years, the former Clementine Christos; one daughter from each marriage; and two granddaughters.The primary aim of any translator, Dr. Rabassa believed, was to convey the author’s personality and to capture the imagination and energy of the writing, while making it sound natural and idiomatic to the second language.“That’s what a good translation is,” he told the New York Times in 2004. “You have to think if García Márquez had been born speaking English, that’s how a translation should sound.”Read more Washington Post obituaries Margaret Vinci Heldt, hairdresser who took hair to new heights with beehive, dies at 98 Jerome S.
