In this installment, we’re excited to share the new translations from the Latin of two poems by Catullus, translated by Richard Green, and a series of epigrams by Martial translated by George Held. We hope you’ll appreciate the trip to ancient times, the authors’ daring language, as well as their witty English renditions.
And remember, in September and beyond, to read and share with your friends your favorite literary translations, celebrating the world’s heritage in one breath. We hope our month-long translation feat inspires and delights you.
