Back to the Conference:  "Translating Ibsen"--I did a Masters thesis on the women in Ibsen's plays in 1977 right around the time I first met Jane Alexander who had co-translated Ibsen's "The Master Builder" and was performing the role of "Hilda Wangel" in it at the Kennedy Center.  A fascinating session!  An interesting note:  the scholar who was to have co-moderated the session, an outspoken authority on Chinese literature, was denied a visa and was unable to attend the Congress!
