Abstract

This article examines the figure of José María Arguedas as a translator (1911-1969), focusing on the 1960s when the author published Dioses y hombres de Huarochirí (1966). Through this translation, Arguedas achieved the culmination of an incessant translating work, which, nevertheless, has remained obscured under the double image of the anthropologist and the writer. Although his narrative and anthropological work continues to receive critical attention, there are still few studies dedicated to analysing his work as a translator. Within the field of translator studies and through a diachronic analysis of the paratexts that accompanied the translation of the Huarochirí manuscript, this paper analyses the profile of Arguedas as a translator and examines his political and ideological positioning, his public image and self-representation, his attitudes towards translation and the social networks that fostered his work as a translator.
Este artículo reconstruye la figura de José María Arguedas traductor (1911-1969), centrándose sobre todo en la década de los 60 en la que publicó Dioses y hombres de Huarochirí (1966). A través de esta traducción, Arguedas alcanzó el ápice de un trabajo traductológico incesante que, sin embargo, ha permanecido opacado bajo la doble imagen del antropólogo y del escritor. A diferencia de su obra narrativa y antropológica, que continúa suscitando mucha atención por parte de la crítica, son todavía escasos los estudios dedicados a analizar su perfil como traductor. Dentro del campo de los Estudios del traductor y a través de un análisis diacrónico de los paratextos que acompañaron la traducción del manuscrito de Huarochirí, este ensayo restituye una instantánea del Arguedas traductor y analiza su posicionamiento político e ideológico, su imagen pública y su auto-representación, sus actitudes hacia la traducción y las redes sociales que impulsaron su labor como traductor.
