Resumo

Este artigo propõe a metáfora da prizemliénie (aterrissagem) como uma nova abordagem investigativa para os Estudos de Tradução. A prizemliénie se refere a textos literários que “aterrissam” no campo literário da língua de chegada sem que adquiram um público-leitor amplo ou que se integrem à cultura de chegada. Tendo o foco na tradução literária do russo ao irlandês, acompanho o registro de atividades do An Gúm, a organização oficial para publicações do Estado Livre Irlandês, com atenção para o que diz respeito à tradução literária; realizo um close reading e um estudo do caso da primeira tradução de Dostoiévski em língua irlandesa, feita em 1938; e examino o habitus de três dos tradutores literários mais significativos do russo para o irlandês. Na conclusão, argumento que até mesmo a interação cultural mínima mantida pela prizemliénie desepenha um papel importante na preservação da língua de chegada.
