Ken Knabb's masperized translations

05-02-2006 04:02

For decades, the only translation of the Situationist International's text about Jean Maitron -- an "anarchist" historian who'd falsified one of the SI's texts, got called on it and, when he didn't do anything, was roughed-up by two young situs -- was Ken Knabb's masperized version, which failed to translate well over half of this relatively short text.

Such intense thought, at the boundaries of his comprehension, caused Cantor to suffer repeated mental breakdowns. Infinity drove him mad.
