Translation in his view constitutes a form of ‘metacommunication’. ” (1976a:226). James Holmes shared Popoviè’s concern; André Lefevere would later speak of ‘refracted texts’ and then of ‘rewriting’. In his 1976 essay ‘Aspects of Metatext’ Popoviè surveyed the whole range of ‘metatexts’ and their relations with ‘prototexts’, from transcription, plagiarism and forgery to parody, paraphrase and translation, including fictitious translations (he called them pseudotranslations) and pseudo-originals.
