(p.258) 12 Translating Antiquity: Intertextuality, Anachronism, and Archaism
Classical Constructions

Deborah H. Roberts

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines intertextuality, anachronism, and archaism in translations. It considers some of the particular problems or issues that arise in archaizing translation of classical texts and then asks whether a return to some form of archaizing as a feature of Venuti’s foreignizing seems likely to emerge. The chapter concludes by returning to anachronistic quotation, paradoxically employed in the service of a mode of archaism.

Keywords:   translations, intertextuality, anachronism, archaism
