Translation and the Poet's Life

The Ethics of Translating in English Culture, 1646-1726

Paul Davis

  • A fascinating study of the careers and self-perceptions of major poet-translators in the golden age of translation
  • Focuses on the work of the five leading poet-translators of the age: John Denham, Henry Vaughan, Abraham Cowley, John Dryden, and Alexander Pope
  • Builds an argument through metaphors available to translators of the day: translator as exile, as child, as cryptographer, as slave, and as trader
