Μερικά αποσπάσματα (ελεύθερη απόδοση εν μερει)

 

people think that they don't think much about classics

 

One reason to learn latin : read wonderful things written in it . and it is worth reading in the original

 

why not reading a translation and why do we translate classics again and again?

Because translate means make something make sense to you.

to you. not to everyone. not what the writer originally intended to say.

 

Thucidides is next to untranslatable. He is trying to do the revolutionary in 5th century BC of writting analytically, he is tryng to struggle with ideas of power and the result is extremly smart, clever and extremelly difficult, close to untraslatable
