This is a book for people who love words and books immoderately. You can't read it per se; you can only dip into it and savor a page or two, before moving on to another. Where else can you get a couple of pages on the phrase "Matter (or matters) of fact," and how to translate it into French? And how it compares to "fact of the matter?" Delicious, if you're word-besotted like I am. Otherwise, this book will just be a big useless red brick to you. Be warned -- either way.

I'm marking this book as "read" even though it's impossible to read completely. It's a book so heavy it would break your spine if you tried to read it in bed.As Nick's review says, this is an encyclopedia made for deep browsing, for readers who love literature and the clashing idiom of ideas. I was recently reading Erich Auerbach's classic essay Figura (a masterpiece in itself), and I turned to the Untranslatables' entry on Eidôlon, which starts with the Greek concept of imagery, its relation t [...]

Ce livre ne peut bien entendu pas être «lu» entièrement comme un ouvrage «ordinaire» (si toutefois il existe des ouvrages ordinaires), puisqu'il s'agit d'un dictionnaire, certes particulier, mais qui se lit toute une vie :).6 petites étoiles pour ce «petit» travail qu'a dirigé Barbara Cassin.Voici une interview en radio du personnage : franceculture/emissionAinsi qu'une interview écrite dont j'ai repris l'extrait ci-joint :rslvues/252«Commençons par le geste philosophique. Il s’ag [...]

See my blog: annemichael.wordpress/201I'm going to tag this book as "read" but it is really more of an encyclopedia/reference work that will stay within my reach often.

The title is misleading. This one is neither Dictionary nor Of Untranslatables. What precisely the 1000 plus pages might be I do not know. Some Experimental Study perhaps? At a stretch, one might call it a glossary.First, not even (or, as annotated, "close to") 400 words (less, if derivatives be discounted) are too few for a dictionary, it`s more like a primary school vocabulary. Besides, a dictionary is, first and foremost, a reference book, with words/terms either translated or explained in fe [...]

A truly remarkable dictionary which I have only skimmed through, it's not quite a book you read from cover to cover. I will be donating this book to my eldest daughters High School which I think will find it very interesting and useful.I had actually won a copy of The Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism through but was sent this one instead.

Niet direct iets om aan te bevelen. Ik heb hier een jaar over gedaan! Vooral omdat je een "woordenboek" nu eenmaal niet in een keer uitleest. Er staat veel interessants in, soms is het gewoon langdradig en ver gezocht. Maar vooral op taalgebied staan er een flink aantal interessante onderwerpen in.
