Mystery of a Birth: The Translation His-


tory of The Story of a Poor Vagrant Boy
Hung-Shu Chen

Bao Tianxiao, one of the most important translators in the late Qing Dy-
nasty, translated Xins Journal about School Life (), The Story of Buried
or Thrown Stones (), and The Story of a Poor Vagrant Boy (
). These books were significant in that they introduced important ideas,
such as modernity, children, and education, to late Qing China. Where exactly
these books came from, however, has remained a mystery, even to Bao himself.
Through literature review and text analysis, I seek to understand how Sans Famille
was translated into The Story of a Poor Vagrant Boy and aim to write a brief transla-
tion history for the latter.
After following traces through the different versions, I have proven that
Baos The Story of a Poor Vagrant Boy was translated from Yuho Kikuchis Japa-
nese translation entitled A Child without Family (), which was in turn
translated from Hector Malots Sans Famille. Through comparing the original
French novel and its translations, these new findings, findings regarding Baos
translation strategies and his role as a translator, have given many in the field of
Chinese translation history a reason to revise their image of Bao. The impor-
tance of close reading is confirmed as a result. It is important to connect textual
and extra-textual information, such that new evidence can be found through
comparison, analysis and investigation, allowing us to verify the route of indirect
translation. This approach may inspire and enrich research in the field of transla-
tion history.

Keywords: Sans Famille, Bao Tianxiao, Yuho Kikuchi, indirect translation, transla-
tion history
