Abstract

This article tries to discuss the translation methods of the imagery in the Classical Chinese Poetry based on the Reception Theory, including three parts, the introduction, the main body and the conclusion. Based on the theory, the meaning of a translated text must be concretized in the process of the target reader’s reading which eventually brings the finalization of the text. With the aim of overcoming the linguistic and cultural disparities between two languages while translating, the article analyzes the translation process from the first reception of the translator and the second reception of the target readers, during which the translator receives the original text, makes response and then tries to communicate with the target readers by the translated works. In this process, translator should deal with differences in language and culture flexibly according to the specific context. Therefore, the article makes a comprehensive and contrastive analysis of different versions of imagery translation, and puts forward flexible translation methods, including preserving, substituting, omitting and supplementing the original images in the source language based on different imagery categories in order to satisfy the need of the translator and the target readers, thus bringing enlightenment to the imagery translation and achieving cross-cultural intercourse among different countries.
