Abstract:Shakespeare’s Macbeth was translated in Romanian by at least nine translators, beginning with 1850, when the first Romanian translation was published, and ending with the year 2000. P.P. Carp, an important political and cultural figure of the second half of the 19th century Romania, was the second translator of the play, and the first to have used an English original version and not a French or German intermediary text. Our paper deals mainly with the first publication of his translation of the play in 1864 and touches upon the second and the third editions published in 1886 and 2005, respectively. We focus on the way in which some major and accelerated changes in the Romanian language of the period are reflected in the text of the translation and, in spite of its subsequent severe criticism, on Carp’s linguistic competence and literary skill.
