L’arte del tradurre secondo Wilamowitz



This article – which is a reelaborated and increased version of the
Introduction to U. von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff, L’arte del tradurre (ed. by
E. Simeone) Napoli 2012 – deals with the long-standing problem of

with the former ones especially against the German theorists and translators
of XIII-XIX centuries.
