Abstract:   (82 Views)
The aim of this paper is to study the unique and universal features of the author's presentation of life and death based on the prose of late XIX – early XX centuries in the aspect of interaction between the Russian and English pictures of the world. We detail the results of lexicographical and etymological analysis, contextual, conceptual and cognitive review of translation strategies and techniques of Chekhov's fiction. A number of prose, drama and letters translations of Anton Chekhov by Constance Garnett Julius West and Gerard R. Ledger are examined for this purpose. By carrying out an analysis of these texts using a variety of methods we state that the effectiveness of translation is determined by the functionality of decoding. The personality of the interpreter acts as an intermediate link in the translation process, the competence and creative potential of whom provides interpretation of the author's ideas in the target language. Consequently, we validate hypotheses that the full convergence of ideas about life and death of the Russians and British facilitates the transfer of Chekhov's images into English to a large extend.
