Dr. Stuart Gillespie, among other qualifications, is a scholar of Shakespearean literature at the University Of Glasgow, Scotland. “English Translation” is an intellectually dense examination of the art of translation; particularly translation of ancient classics like “The Iliad”, “The Odyssey”, and works of Ovid, Juvenal, and Horace.
Gillespie’s book is a warning to book critics that are not authors but interpret author’s work. If a critic fails to understand trans-formative moments, by those authors that can create trans-formative moments, then the critic’s critique is a failure. Gillespie suggests that critics that are not authors should not be critics; i.e. a little too harsh for this ignorant critic.
This is an interesting and insightful book that would be more fun to one who understands Latin.
