Reynolds et al. (eds): Babel

Babel: Adventures in Translation is a new collection of essays co-written by Committee member Matthew Reynolds together with Dennis Duncan, Stephen Harrison, and Katrin Kohl. Published by Bodleian Publishing, the book shows how linguistic diversity has inspired people across time and cultures to embark on adventurous journeys through the translation of texts. Sixty-five color illustrations accompany examples ranging from Greek papyri through illuminated manuscripts and fine early books to fantasy languages, the search for a universal language, and the challenges of translation in multicultural Britain.
