Is science fiction literature's first international language? - The Guardian | Human Writes | Scoop.it

"Language may be the most obvious barrier to cultural exchange, but it is also the easiest to hurdle: a good translator can capture much if not all of the character of a great novel. The real barrier to sharing between cultures is culture itself."
