Abstract

On the basis of reception theory, the paper probes into the variety of translation strategies from the process of literary translation, indeterminacy of text meaning, horizon of readers' expectation and translators' foregrounding. And then the translator's subjectivity is also discussion from the perspective of reception theory. At the same time, the adjustment of translators' strategies is still bound up with the original text.
