I've had this discussion with Alex before and it is quite intriguing to me! Tell me about your favorite translations of the classical works. |
Ted Hughes (Metamorphoses)
Pound (Book 11 of Homer)
I am in the minority. I do not particularly love Lattimore. I think Fagles is great but often too easy, if that makes sense.
I am probably the only person ever who is in love with Robert Fitzgerald's translations. I think they are supernal.
