Translation

We’ll meet Saturday, December 5 in Ann Arbor to discuss translation.  The text we’ll focus on for our open session on Saturday morning is Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s massive, mid-19th century anthology Poets and Poetry of Europe (Philadelphia:  Cary and Hart, 1845);  a pdf of the Google Books scan of a New York Public Library copy of the text can be found here; you can also view and download it directly via Hathi Trust.

Three contemporaneous reviews may also be of interest:

  • The North American Review (July 1845)
  • The American Whig Review:  Part 1 (Nov. 1846) and Part 2 (Dec. 1846)
    • (Also available via the Making of America site, here and here)
  • The United States Magazine and Democratic Review (Feb. 1847)
    • (Also available via the Making of America site, here)
