Resumen:   This study proposes a theoretical and methodological framework for literary translation. Further, the question of what discipline should deal with translation is raised. Quite naturally, most of the work in this field has been carried out in the framework of linguistics. However, the fact that there are various kinds of verbal texts gave rise to debates on the problem whether the linguist is exclusively competent to deal with them all. For example, is linguistics or theory of literature the right discipline to explore literary translation? This debate seems to miss the point, since modern theory of literature cannot be conceived of as totally separate from general semiology, which among other things subsumes linguistics . Since the theory of literature is relatively undeveloped as a science , a~ discussion vhich has to rely upon the conceptual set of this theory must elaborate such a set at least ad hoc. It is therefore attempted in this study to formulate a basic set of concepts for a literary textual theory, as a preliminary to any discussion of literary translation proper. Since the object of this study is to establish a general theoretical (and methodological) framework, it contains no discussions of specific issues such as the differences between various specific literatures (and languages) , genres or periods. There are already thousands of studies of particular problems of literary translation, but we still lack an adequate theoretical (and methodological) framework, vhich may serve such studies.
