Classics and Translation
D.S. Carne-Ross and Kenneth Haynes (Ed.)
Essays by D.S. Carne-Ross
D. S. Carne-Ross was one of the finest critics of classical literature in English translation after Arnold. More than four decades of Carne-Ross's writings are represented in this volume, which includes criticism of both ancient and modern writers, in addition to historical-critical studies of translation, discriminating analyses of translators widely read today, and investigations in the relationship between translation, criticism, and literary creation. This book will appeal to a wide audience including classicists, specialists in reception and translation studies, students of comparative literature, and literary readers.
