READING: Op een Novemberavond in 1775 rijdt de postkoets van Londen naar Dover over de heuvels, als zij wordt ingehaald door een bede te paard, die met de onbegrijpelijke boodschap 'Tot het leven teruggeroepen' naar Londen terugkeert. De betekenis van de bodschap wordt duidelijk als wij in Parijs, verborgen op een zolder, gevangen in verstandsverbijstering, dokter Manette vinden. Jarenlang is hij gevangene van de Bastille geweest; nu hij vrij gelaten is, leeft hij nog slechts als een wrak. Door de trouwe zorg van zijn dochter Lucie wordt hij echter inderdaad tot het leven teruggeroepen; hij vestigt zich in Londen. Daar vatten zijn dochter en een jonge Fransman, Charles Darnay, liefde voor elkaar op. Darnay, van afkomst aristocraat, trekt in de Terreurdagen van de Franse Revolutie naar Parijs, wordt gevangen genomen, ten koste van eindeloze inspanningen vrijgesproken, doch opnieuw gegrepen en nu ter dood veroordeeld. Dan ziet de stille verering van Sydney Carton, een vriend van Lucie, een uitweg voor zijn liefde, en 0eedding voor Charles Darnay.

READING: A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and the reign of terror that followed. The story takes us back and forth between London and Paris-the two cities-and revolves around the lives of Lucie Manette and Charles Darnay. Against the grim background of the guillotine, unfolds a tale of adventure and mystery, heroism and courage. We see the quintessential Dickens as he vividly portrays the trials and tribulations of the poor at the hands of the rich, before the Revolution and the mindless mayhem that follows it. This historical novel is unusual for Dickens, whose other major works are set in Victorian England.

READING: This study investigates the problems translators encounter when rendering features of Dickens's style in A Tale of Two Cities into Arabic. Examples of these features are singled out and analyzed. Then, they are compared with their counterparts in published translations of the novel in Arabic. The comparisons depend on back translation to give non-readers of Arabic a clear idea about the similarities and differences between the source text and target one(s). The features under focus are sound effects, figurative language, humor, repetition, and the French element. The discussion dedicated to onomatopoeia, alliteration, and rhyme shows that there is no one-to-one correspondence between English and Arabic in reflecting these linguistic phenomena. Translators may resort to techniques like rewording or paraphrasing to convey their propositional content at the expense of their sound effects. Problems also arise when rendering figurative language into Arabic. Various images in the novel are substituted by different ones that convey similar meanings in Arabic. Some of them are deleted or reduced to their propositional content. In addition, footnotes are used to convey cultural aspects. Translating humor shows the role context plays in facilitating the translator's task. Techniques of translating humor conveyed via substandard English are noted. The researcher also discusses translating humor that depends on background knowledge that the target text readers may not be familiar with. Further translation issues are noticed when rendering repetition. Some linguistic asymmetries between English and Arabic make translators dispense with repetition and resort to synonymy, collocations, and constructions that fit in Arabic. More problems arise when rendering the French element in various names, titles, and what might be considered as literal translations of French speech. Throughout the discussion suggestions are made to bring about more adequate renderings. This study also discusses the novel as a metaphor of translating. Many aspects of the novel are comparable to the translation process. Relationships among various characters provide a perspective from which the relationship between authors, translators/readers, and text can be seen. Finally, the significance of some examples of inter-language communication in the novel is pointed out.

READING: De levensverwachting van hiv-patiënten die hun medicatie trouw slikken is inmiddels vrijwel vergelijkbaar met die van even oude personen zonder hiv. Deze bijna genormaliseerde levensverwachting heeft wel een aantal nieuwe problemen aan het licht gebracht, stelt Jan Prins in het tweede deel van deze dubbeloratie. Die problemen duiken de komende jaren nog regelmatig op, zoals het vroeger voorkomen van ouderdomsziekten en co-infecties met bijvoorbeeld HPV. Eenmaal begonnen met medicatie moet je er levenslang mee doorgaan en dat is volgens Prins een hele opgave en vergt veel uitzoeken. Maar hij stelt dat zijn leerstoel meer omvat dan alleen hiv. De grootste uitdaging van de komende jaren is de beteugeling van antimicrobiële resistentie. In Engeland en de Verenigde Staten voltrekt zich nu een doemscenario omdat op intensive care-afdelingen patiënten overlijden aan infecties waar geen antibiotica meer voor te vinden zijn. Er zal veel moeten gebeuren om dit tij te keren. Tenslotte komen de grote drie infectieziekten (hiv, tuberculose en malaria) vooral in Afrika voor. Het AMC zal de komende jaren een project uitvoeren in Beira (Mozambique) gericht op de opleiding van studenten en internisten.

READING: Two classic Charles Dickens novels now available together in one convenient eBook. A Tale of Two Cities Contains an afterword by Stephen Koch. With his sublime parting words, "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done..." Sidney Carton joins that exhalted group of Dickensian characters who have earned a permanent place in the popular literary imagination. His dramatic story, set against the volcanic fury of the French Revolution and pervaded by the ominous rumble of the death carts trundling toward the guillotine, is the heart-stirring tale of a heroic soul in an age gone mad. A masterful pageant of idealism, love, and adventure -- in a Paris bursting with revolutionary frenzy, and a London alive with anxious anticipation -- A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens's most energetic and exciting works. Great Expectations Contains an introduction by John Irving. In the marshy mists of a village churchyard, a tiny orphan boy named Pip is suddenly terrified by a shivering, limping convict on the run. Years later, a supremely arrogant young Pip boards the coach to London where, by the grace of a mysterious benefactor, he will join the ranks of the idle rich and "become a gentleman." Finally, in the luminous mists of the village at evening, Pip the man meets Estella, his dazzingly beautiful tormentor, in a ruined garden--and lays to rest all the heartaches and illusions that his "great expectations" have brought upon him. Dickens's biographer, Edgar H. Johnson, has said that--except for the author's last-minute tampering with his original ending--Great Expectations is "the most perfectly constructed and perfectly written of all Dickens's works." In John Irving's Introduction to this edition, the novelist takes the view that Dickens's revised ending is "far more that mirror of the quality of trust in the novel as a whole." Both versions of the ending are printed here.
