Abstract

Based on the Inkle and Yarico myth, La Jeune Indienne was written in 1764 by French writer Nicolas Chamfort. The comedy premiered on April 30, 1764 and quickly gained popularity on the French stage. The play was performed throughout Europe and was translated into many languages, though not English. Through my work with the play, I am able to explore the world of translation theory and learn which techniques can be used to render the best translation.
