by Xu, Junying

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis is based on my translation of a Chinese domestic drama called Once upon a Rainy Night, written by Dr. Wei-Jan Chi, a famous playwright from Taiwan. This play was translated from Chinese (partial Taiwanese dialect) to English. Based on dramatic text translation theories, this thesis introduces detailed structural analysis as a useful tool both for translators and dramaturges.
