Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for a Translation of a Literary... 12/14/2023

Jonathan Green (Lecture of Languages at the University of North Dakota) received an Honorable Mention for the MLA's Scaglione Prize for his translation of Theuerdank: The Illustrated Epic of a Renaissance Knight (Routledge).

The prize is awarded for an outstanding translation into English of a book-length literary work. The honorable mention citation:

"In his translation, Jonathan Green daringly and convincingly presents Emperor Maximilian’s 1517 narrative poem Theuerdank—about a knight who must overcome myriad moral obstacles to reach his beloved Princess Ehrenrich—as a protographic novel. It is an especially rich edition, with reproductions of more than one hundred intricate woodcuts and with many supporting materials (maps, chronology, a key to the characters and narrative, discussion questions, and suggestions for further reading). Only in Green’s meticulous and pioneeringly readable prose version of the Early New High German poem does “the greatest German book of the Renaissance” come alive as a work that can be compared with Machiavelli’s Prince or Ariosto’s Orlando Furios."

The translation was edited by Howard Louthan (CAS Director and Professor of History at the University of Minnesota)
