Abstract [en]

Drawing on Lawrence Venuti's (2009) discussion of translation and intertextuality, this study presents a comparative analysis of the two Russian translations of Byron's Don Juan to appear in the Soviet era, Georgii Shengeli's from 1947 and Tatiana Gnedich's from 1959. The interdiscursive and intertextual relations established by the two translations presents the reader with two very different works.  While Gnedich's translation is marked by a tendency  to adhere to contemporaneous Soviet discourses, Shengeli's translation is found to accommodate a dialogue with Silver Age literature, making his version a functional equivalent of Akhmatova's A Poem whithout a Hero.
