Robert Alter: The Challenges of Translating the Bible - Neubauer Collegium (Thursday, October 8 at 6pm)
A translation that does some justice to the Hebrew Bible must make some effort to convey in English the subtlety, the expressive compactness, the precision of word-choice, the evocative use of syntax, and related stylistic features of the Hebrew. All this is challenging because the structure of modern English is so different from that of ancient Hebrew. In this Neubauer Collegium Director's Lecture, Robert Alter
will demonstrate his own struggles with these issues through examples from his own translation.
Opening Remarks to be delivered by Jonathan Lear, Roman Family Director of the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society and John U. Nef Distinguished Service Professor at the Committee on Social Thought and in the Department of Philosophy. (lilithcat)… (more)
