Abstract: 
How translation does justice to the style of a literary text is a question which occupied translators and translation scholars long before the emergence of the discipline of Translation Studies and which is also of primary importance in the didactics of literary translation. This paper aims to illustrate a method of comparative stylistic analysis that seeks to combine a target-oriented, non-normative approach to the study of translated literature, as envisaged by Descriptive Translation Studies, with a more traditional, strictly linguistic source-oriented approach. It also draws on one of the basic principles of cognitive stylistics, i.e. the notion that the style of a literary text affects the reader’s perception of the fictional world constructed by the author. Three Italian translations of the opening passage of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher will be compared with the purpose of highlighting their main stylistic differences and their potential effects on the reader. Each translation will then be contrasted with the source text in order to pin down translation strategies, assess their degree of accuracy and finally show how the individual style of the translators becomes visible in the target texts.
