Abstract

Newly Recovered English Classical Translations 1600–1800 is a unique resource: a wide-ranging collection of never-before-printed English translations from ancient Greek and Latin verse and drama of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Transcribed and edited from surviving manuscripts, these translations open a window onto a period in which the full richness and diversity of engagement with classical texts through translation is only now becoming apparent. Some 100 identified translators and many more anonymous writers are included, from familiar and sometimes eminent figures to the obscure and unknown. Newly Recovered English Classical Translations 1600–1800 (NRECT) is an Oxford University Press publication to which this online Annexe may be thought of as an overspill. The primary publication is available online as well as in print, and thus all the texts in the entire edition are viewable and searchable online. This 300-page Annexe is made available free to view with the assistance of a grant from the Loeb Classical Library Foundation and by arrangement with Oxford University Press.
