Poets in a Landscape (New York Review Books Classics) 评价人数不足
读书笔记 Introduction
Not all the "classical" poets wrote loftily "classical" poetry. The language of Roman elegy, for instance, is far closer to everyday conversation than the language of epic and didactic poetry; and in epigrams we often finde words and turns of phrase which are frankly prosaic and colloquial. It is the translaotr's duty to choose words and phrases from his own language and his own time which reflect the tone of the original poems on which he is working; and not to turn a cheerful down-to-earth epigram, which sounded very modern to its first readers, into a remote and archaic utterance filled with thee and thou, hasteth and hearkeneth.
