This chapter focuses on reading three brief texts or stories—all of them concerning loss and translation—to talk about the complicated relations between language and money in the context of imperialism and Spivak's planetary love. Furthermore, it calls attention to the irreducible losses involved in any translation—an unavoidable effect that, however, should not lead to the abandonment of translation and language learning, but rather to their supplementation by a love that recognizes the “ethical singularity” of each and every encounter.

Keywords:   Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, loss, translation, language, money, imperialism, planetary love
