Acknowledged as the world’s foremost translator of Chinese literature into English, Dr. Howard Goldblatt’s translations played a major role in the awarding of the 2012 Nobel Prize in literature to Mo Yan. Goldblatt translated three of the first four novels that were awarded the prestigious Man Asian Literary Prize. The translation by Goldblatt and his wife, Sylvia Li-Chun, of the novel Notes of a Desolate Man received the 1999 American Literary Translators Association Award as the finest work of translation into English from any language.
