Transposition is a genre developed by Angelika Friedrich, Yuri Smirnov and Henry Whittlesey. It falls somewhere between translation and adaptation. Originally applied to literary fiction, the method of transposition involves retaining the original sentence structure of a foreign text, while shifting the content to the modern day, with the new context determining the configuration of this shifted content. A collection of transposed classics was published under the title of From Wahnsinnig to the Loony Bin in 2013.
