Babel: adventures in translation

Corpus Library has lent volume one of its copy of Alexander Pope’s translation of the Iliad (London, Whiston et al, 1771) to the Bodleian exhibition Babel: adventures in translation.  Professor Stephen Harrison, as co-Curator, examines the translation of Homer over the years.  The edition of Iliad lent by Corpus has two engravings – Homer and Pope – facing each other as a double frontispiece, giving equal billing to the translator.  The exhibition runs from 15 February to 2 June 2019.  More information about accessing the exhibition can be found on the Bodleian's What's on? page
