This essay argues that bilingualism plays a pivotal role in the creative process of the Austrian writer Vladimir Vertlib who was born in Russia and, as a teenager, settled with his parents in Vienna after trying to do so in various other countries. Translation constitutes both a topic and a literary technique in a number of Vertlib’s novels. This connection between translation as topic and translation as technique is particularly close in his first two novels Abschiebung and Zwischenstationen. These texts also demonstrate that the creative impulse of the bilingual youngster emerges in conjunction with his transition from child to adult

Abstract

This essay argues that bilingualism plays a pivotal role in the creative process of the Austrian writer Vladimir Vertlib who was born in Russia and, as a teenager, settled with his parents in Vienna after trying to do so in various other countries. Translation constitutes both a topic and a literary technique in a number of Vertlib’s novels. This connection between translation as topic and translation as technique is particularly close in his first two novels Abschiebung and Zwischenstationen. These texts also demonstrate that the creative impulse of the bilingual youngster emerges in conjunction with his transition from child to adult
