A Column on Translation

Paraphrasis is the column in which writers are invited to join the modest but arcane craft of the translator by engaging with poetry, prose, visual arts or music. Here (as T.S. Eliot observes when speaking about Pound's translations of Sextus Propertius) the reader who is a classical scholar "will wonder why this does not conform to his notions of what translation should be. It is not a translation, it is a paraphrase".
