In his vintage paintings, literary critic and student George Steiner tackles what he considers the Babel “problem”: Why, over the process heritage, have people built hundreds of thousands of alternative languages while the social, fabric, and fiscal benefits of a unmarried tongue are seen? Steiner argues that varied cultures’ wants for privateness and exclusivity ended in each one constructing its personal language. Translation, he believes, is on the very middle of human verbal exchange, and therefore on the middle of human nature. From our daily notion of the realm round us, to creativity and the uninhibited mind's eye, to the usually inexplicable poignancy of poetry, we're continuously translating—even from our local language.
