Hello, all my lovely followers! Long time no see! Sorry for the prolonged lack of original posts, but I’ve been crazy busy at my new job as Library Technician at Smithsonian Libraries (@smithsonianlibraries)! I’m working primarily at the Cullman Library in the Natural History Museum, which houses the Smithsonian’s special collections relating to natural history, although I’ve also spent some time at the Dibner Library, which is home to special collections relating to the physical sciences.
Although I’ve only been there for two months, I’ve had the opportunity to do and see some amazing things! From a shelving unit for miniature books to a well-loved 13th century Armenian manuscript (MSS 1675B), the Libraries are truly full of wonders great and small. One of my favorites is the volvelle, or rotating calculator, found in a 16th century alchemical manuscript (MSS 867B)– I just love it when books are interactive! Expect more from that one in the future.
In Killing Stalking Chapter 5, in regards to his parental situation, Bum says, “No… I’ve lived with my grandparents ever since I was a kid… and now my uncle…”
But that’s not what he says in the Korean????
In the original, he says, “아뇨… 부모님은 어릴때부터 안계셨고… 할머니랑… 삼촌… 이랑…” which literally translates to:
“No… My parents haven’t been around since I was a kid, so… with my grandmother… with… my uncle…”
In the original, the lacking presence of his parents is emphasized by their direct mention, and rather than ‘grandparents’, Bum specifies that he lived with his grandmother, although it is unclear whether he means maternal or paternal (which are different words in Korean). Further, there is no indication of a timeline in the original. It could even imply that he lived with both his grandmother and his uncle at the same time.
Further, there is a nuance in how he pauses or hesitates between “with” and “my uncle,” that has been lost in the English translation.
He does say in his next line that he presently lives with his uncle, but it doesn’t necessarily mean he went from his grandmother to his uncle, and jumping straight to “and now my uncle” is a mistranslation anyway.
Tomorrow I have two finals, and today I’m continuing my studies for sociology. Sorry for my lack of original posts, but it was my first semester of college so there was tons of adjustment to make. Also I ordered myself a new laptop case which I happen to adore to pieces. Wish me luck and luck to everyone takin their finals 👍🏼
