Empson, William

Author commented on the textbook editions of this extremely ancient narrative about a hero who wanted to conquer death. He remarked on the difficulties in the text, differences between the 1964 and 1972 Sandars versions, similarities to Shelley, various literary strategies, and the persistent problem of translation itself.
