Books in Translation

I'm always trying to read more of what's out there, but unfortunately I don't understand all languages, so I'm always grateful to find translated works. Here's a big ol' list of works translated into English from around the world. Some of them I've read and some I haven't, but I'm keeping them here so I can continue to read around the world. Hopefully it will inspire you as well!
Many of the works came from World Literature Today's yearly list of 75 notable translations, some from the 1,001 books to read before you die list, some from my memory, and some from other world literature lists.
