Reticence and resonance in the work of translating

Kenneth Maly

pp. 147-156

For me, the issue of a "transformed relationship" to the words and language that we have, given to us as a given, arose as soon as I opened William J. Richardson's book Heidegger: Through Phenomenology to Thought (1963) for the first time in 1966. I was struck by two things: (1) the fact that all over and on almost every page Heidegger's German appears, either in parentheses or at the bottom of the page, and (2) that the book uses a lot of hyphenating — what Richardson humorously calls "chronic hyphenitis."1
