Irish Texts Society Subsidiary Series Volume 17: Translations from Classical Literature: Imtheachta Aeniasa and Stair Ercuil ocus a Bás (Seminar series)
The proceedings of the seventh annual seminar, organised jointly by the Irish Texts Society and the Combined Departments of Irish at University College Cork, contains contributions reconsidering two medieval Irish texts forming volumes 6 and 38 of the Society's Main Series, adaptations respectively of the Aeneid and legend of Hercules. In addition, they survey such issues as the medieval Irish tradition of translating and adapting classical texts and modern theory and practice and medieval translation. The contributions to the seminar – by Fiona Cox, Diana Luft, Gearóid MacEoin, Máire Ní Mhaonaigh and Erich Poppe – situate the texts in their medieval context as translations, consider how they are illuminated by modern critical theory, and supplement and update the scholarship of the original editors.
